Cheers Michael and Thomas, but actually that's not the problem :(.  I'd 
actually fixed the SuSE bug in my branch as follows:

< rls = toupper(ssh_cmd(socket:sock, cmd:"cat /etc/SuSE-release"));
< if("SUSE"><rls) {
<     ver = eregmatch(pattern:"VERSION = ([0-9\.]+)", string:rls);
<     if( isnull(ver) ) ver[1] = " ";
<     set_kb_item(name: "ssh/login/release", value: "SUSE"+ver[1]);
<     buf = ssh_cmd(socket:sock, 
cmd:"/bin/rpm -qa --qf '%{NAME}~%{VERSION}~%{RELEASE};\n'");

Obviously your check is an improvement on that ;).  I may have the chance to 
run my scripts on a real world box this week, so I'll see if I can nail down 
where my problem lies.
