return if $line =~$line =~ /Server not using user level security and no password supplied./;

Just one quick comment: the dot at the end of this regex is not doing what you probably think, it is a meta-character that will match any character (except new lines, unless you are in single-line mode). If you want to match a dot, you have to escape it, i.e. write \. This probably does not help you much on your problem, but it is still better to know it.

    i know that is a wild card, but the original code of amanda backup just used it, but for that propose it is useless, so i just removed it.
      "so i just removed it."
      That's probably a poor approach, if I understand you correctly (though very likely I don't).

      Why can't you escape it, instead, or use a quotemeta approach.

      If I've misconstrued your question, my apologies to all those electrons which were inconvenienced by the creation of this post.
