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
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.
