Ignore me if it won't work for you, but something to consider: If you used pre-positioned ssh keys to authenticate instead of passwords, all your problems described here would just go away. Additionally you won't have to retool your Expect machinations when you hit a different server that acts a bit differently. There are many discussions and tutorials on the web, just search for something like 'using ssh key' and you'll retrieve a wealth of information.

    Yup, I did think about that and I will use it. However, some scenarios need to go through the more painful experience, cannot always afford the ssh key trick. Thanks for the advice though, good point!
