Re: [SLUG] cron running some scheduled jobs twice


I'm jumping in rather late here but perhaps there are 2 'crond' processes 
running? They appear to be going off at around the same time, maybe the 
jobs are fighting each other for locks & so forth. Same could happen with 
'anacron' processes on other distros.
