[rancid] problem with new Aruba/HP 2920

got a new HP/Aruba 2920 to replace an old failed 2910al (POE power
supply failure - very common).. Weird thing is, hlogin doesn't work on
it. I get an EOF right after trying to send enable and it tries to match
the many stupid formatting characters that the Aruba folks have tried to
put into the output.

I have manually set the switch to vt100 terminal type and reloaded, but
still it persists and it's loaded with those characters. I can't say
definitively that they are the issue, but something sure is strange. I
started looking into it and debugging and noticed all that. Also, clogin
seems to work (aside from command incompatibility), but hlogin does not
and gets an EOF prematurely.

Anybody seen this?

I did just upgraed to rancid3.7 from 3.4.1 to see if that would help,
and it did not. Same behavior.
