You can either modify the following to match the 'force10' platform (does
the newer one accept quit?)

# line 678
    if { [ string compare "extreme" "$platform" ] } {
        send -h "exit\r"
    } else {
        send -h "quit\r"

or you could add a stanza in the next section to catch the error thrown when
sending 'exit' to old force10.
