Check what's in rancid's "logs" directory to get a hint as to what is

Also I suggest you test with "jlogin -c 'show version'" to see what
happens when jlogin tries to run a command and collect output.

99% of rancid's problems stem from failing to be able to detect the
device's prompt correctly, so it can't tell when it is supposed to be
submitting commands.  That said, your device's prompt doesn't look
unusual so I'm not sure why it would fail.

Perhaps rancid is not recognizing a particular command's output, which
is something that your logs will tell you.
