[rancid] Unable to figure out "end of run not found"

Hi all, we manage about 200-300 Brocade ICX switches across a number of
locations. All but two are being successfully polled. The two in question
(same firmware and a similar config to the others) consistently show "end
of run not found" when run as part of the cron job. But, when run manually
for troubleshooting, everything seems to work.

`sudo -u rancid flogin switchname` works fine and logs me into the switch.

`sudo -u rancid flogin -c 'show version;show clock' switchname` likewise
works fine. Logs in, runs the commands, and logs out.

`sudo -u rancid rancid -t foundry -d switchname` runs through everything
perfectly. The switchname.new file has the expected output.

Yet the log for the automated process consistently shows this:

switchname: End of run not found

Is there anything else I can do to troubleshoot this? Thanks in advance!
