Thank-you!  I tried the Dec 20 snapshot dated (~15:36 if I recall right),
and the expect script worked fine; as a bonus it looks it yielded all
the output wanted.  Sorry I'm being so general..any how thanks again.

There seems to be a new (related?) issue w/this Dec 20 snapshot.  I don't
have time to log the test formally now; I hope you will see the problem if
you run:

  ssh localhost date

At least in the case were you are prompted for your password, the
date command either does not run or it's output is lost.
