I'm running this on Debian GNU/Linux 3.0r1 using only the debian
packages. The version are:
expect version 5.32.2
I have tried the patch present on the rancid homepage, but it did not
help much. It does seem like a different problem, as it work 100% as long
as the output from any single command does not become to long. When a very
verbose command is run it always hangs. I have been trying to establish
it always occurs at the same bytecount of output but have not had that much
time to pour into it just yet.
