The error is very often discussed on the list; see John's reply for more 

For reference, when I need to see the detail of what is really going on, I 
do the following (the rancid programs are not in my usual path):

  env NOPIPE=y PATH=${PATH}:/usr/local/libexec/rancid rancid -d devicename

which will produce devicename.raw and and devicename.new files in the 
current directory which can be examined along with the chatty output.

>From time to time I have also done:

  cd /usr/local/libexec/rancid
  expect -d ./clogin -c 'show config' devicename

to get debugging data out of expect.
