clogin with CatOS + autoenable

Been using rancid with CatOS that required login password and then
manually enable with enable password, it was working fine.
We changed the CatOS switch (5500) to use aaa server which enters user
directly to enable mode and the clogin seems to be unable to deal with

$clogin cat55
spawn telnet cat55

Cisco Systems Console

Username: rancid

cat55-u-b> (enable)
Error: TIMEOUT reached

the login succeeds but seems the clogin will not recognize the enable
prompt and expecting the # sign.

the .cloginrc config is:

add user	cat55  	rancid
add password   	cat55   	{rancidpassword}
add autoenable 	cat55   	1

before I go hacking the clogin, is this really not supported or am I
missing something ?
