The problem looks like it's specific to RH 9.0. I removed RH 9.0 and
installed SuSE 9.0 and now it works fine with the exact same config. Maybe
there is some subtle difference between the two distros with respect to
either expect or perl? However, both distros have the same versions of the
two mentioned apps.
That's o.k. since I like SuSE better anyway, but I wish I could figure out
what did it in case it happens after an upgrade.
