[rancid] Dell Switches with "K" in the host name fail

Thanks Matej! I had seen this already but couldn't figure out why it was there.
For some reason when running drancid on certain Dell Powerconnect switches, "[K" gets prepended the prompt. This line seems to be trying to remove that "[K".
I got rid of the K but now certain switches have "K" prepended.
I'm not very good with Perl but this is my fix and I think it works:
$prompt =~ tr/\033\\\[//d;
$prompt =~ s/^K//d;
