Dont have a netscreen myself, but my best guess is that its not eating a
line but rather you're bitten by overstriking that removes the pager
prompt.  If you use an editor that does not filter/interpret control
characters, do the missing lines appear in the file in the repository
or a .raw file (export NOPIPE=YES; nrancid -d host)?
