[rancid] exit.. no, logout

I am dealing with a Dell 6224 switch that has an interesting quirk. The powerconnect and cisco-sb types both do the job of logging in and retrieving information, however at the very end when rancid is trying to logout, it leaves enabled mode with "exit", and then tries to logoff the switch completely with "exit" - except that that command does not exist in disabled mode, only 'quit' and 'logout'. The result is that rancid gets stuck in a loop issuing the 'exit' command, gets a 'command doesn't exist' response and never successfully logs out. Where and how can I modify this so that rancid tries the 'quit' and 'logout' commands as well as 'exit'?

Some info that may be helpful:
