System: NetBSD 1.0A NetBSD 1.0A (PGOYETTE) #30: Fri Jul 14 19:38:53 PDT 1995 mac68k

REPORT feature does not work quite as documented.  In
		particular, if the current "expected" string is found
		in the middle of or concurrent with a REPORT string,
		the REPORT string is never reported.  

		Additionally, if the REPORT string is found, that string
		and all subsequent characters, up to the next control
		character OR the end of the current "expected" string 
		are written to the report file.

		This appears to be a result of the code resetting the
		contents of the receive buffer as soon as the expected
		string is found;  this doesn't leave any of the earlier
		characters around for matching with the REPORT string(s).

		Create a chat script with a REPORT string identical to
		an expected string, for example REPORT CONNECT.
