I just recently setup RANCID to do backups of all of our HP switches and 
for the most part it works wonderfully. There are some minor issues with 
the Alpha (to be expected) when using SVN (it does a single commit per 
config file, rather then a single large commit..

Anyway, almost all of our Switches worked perfectly, however the 
Procurve 4000's all failed. In goggling/reading the archives I found a 
reference that stated the failure is caused by the fact that they 
instantly go to the menu, however there was no stated solution (This was 
a conversation from 2003). Has anyone delt with the Procurve 4000's + 
RANCID and if so is there a solution?
