Can you make a small inconsequential change (such as interface description),
and it affects the RANCID generated email?

If the new email includes the interface description change PLUS all the
other previous changes, it's possible that your  file permissions have
changed, and that (the userid running) RANCID isn't able to modify the
config for the device in question.
