[rancid] Cisco MDS/NX-OS timestamp in show command

Hi List,

I'm running rancid 2.3.6 against a pair of cisco mds fiber switches.
everything works as expected except one little problem. My switches
are printing out a nice little banner with the timestamp whenever show
run is ran.

Obviously this is a problem, and my diffs end up looking like the following.
 !DEBUG: % Permission denied
 !Command: show running-config
- !Time: Tue Mar 15 18:01:13 2011
+ !Time: Tue Mar 15 19:01:13 2011

 version 5.0(1a)
 no feature http-server

I found the thread in the list archives about suppressing the time
stamp out by editing the DoNothing() command to run no exec prompt
timestamp, but I think that is for a different type of timestamp, as I
made the change but I still get the timestamp. I can't even run no
exec prompt timestamp on the switch either.

Anyone have any experience and/or idea on where I should be focusing
to remove these timestamps?
