One of the challenges with dejagnu is getting it to run with the test 
suite... Sometimes the fault is dejagnu, sometime expect. Under Fedora 
9/10/11 expect has issues with the newer tcl and dynamic loading of the 
clock module... I have to use a static compiled version of expect with 
an older tcl version to avoid the problem...
So - if someone could write the equivalent in python that is standalone 
w/o esoteric software being installed  - I am all for it...
