[rancid] Extreme EXOS switches - what model?

I’m somewhat confused here; I have some Extreme X620 switches (that’s the Summit / EX-OS line) that I’m trying to add into RANCID.
However, my v3.9 installation, upon seeing “extreme” in router.db, still tries to run the “enable” command after logging in, which is wrong – VERY wrong, and tells me the wrong device type in is use.
Yet when I manually run “xlogin” to one of these devices, it still fails because it treats it like a Cisco-ish device, not like an EXOS device.

What device type am I supposed to put in router.db?  Why doesn’t xlogin successfully log in??

I feel like I’m missing something here…

Pointers appreciated.
