This probably won't be of much help, I figured I'd chime in anyway since 
it may effect me in the future, but I just haven't had any trouble with 
rancid on 7.x yet. It's only been in operation for 11 days though.

I'm currently  monitoring 18 cisco routers using ssh login, probably not 
enough to trigger the problem.
