The expect driver using ssh as the transport may fail if the ssh key 
is not know or

has changed, etc.  The driver should probably be changed to accomodate 
this as much

as possible (e.g. accepting the new key).  It should _not_ be changed 
to accept a

changed key, as this would be a security issue.



The root problem is either the ssh configuration, or failure of the 
admin to setup the

account correctly, but there is little reason not to try to work 
around these issues in

the expect script, since expect makes it so easy to do this type of thing.
