Anybody using RANCID to archive the configurations of VDCs on an N7K?

We are able to connect to the base system correctly, but the VDCs are 
not archiving correctly.   We can clogin to the device and run various 
commands, but rancid-run against the VDCs doesn't complete.

The user being used for rancid to login has been created with role 
vdc-admin in the VDC configuration.

The log file shows:
Getting missed routers: round 1.

distsw01: End of run not found
!Software: system compile time: 3/21/2009 12:00:00 [04/05/2009 23:43:35]

The only differences I see between the base and the VDCs as far as 
prompts go is that the VDCs display as:
The base system displays as:

What steps can I do to troubleshoot why this is failing?  Has anybody 
else successfully used RANCID on an N7K VDC?
