In /etc/pam.d/system-auth, or somewhere else in cron's pam chain, you've got
the pam_succeed_if module, which is granting access to users with a uid less
than 100. Also looks like it's got the logging option turned on :)
In this case, cron runs as root, so it's allowed to do stuff.
This is part of the default install on RHEL4 and FC3 upwards, iirc.
