Hmm. I've been having problems with cron as well, but I haven't tried a 
ps -axl, so I don't know if we're having the same problem.

Is cron just not running cronjobs anymore? That's what's been happening
to me. 

I noticed that after my cron stops working, if I edit a user's crontab,
cron dies a minute later. Does this happen to you?
