If I use device type "cisco-nx" it simply does not work at all - after 24 hours I start getting the "unable to connect to device" emails every hour.   Has anyone else run into this yet, or am I the first?

which are what?

I do not know what would be particular about the 1000v over other nexus,
besides perhaps environmentals, which was fixed in rancid 3.3.  Assuming
you have rancid 3.3 or newer, would you send the output of

rancid -t cisco-nx -d hostname
