Well, it only does it because of system failure.
I restarted my cron last night at 20:02, and noticed this morning that I
got the same problem... lots of /USR/BIN/CRON processes running (a couple
I can't find any process, that's bugging it though (i.e. not exiting).
And It also looks wierd, that the first /USR/BIN/CRON process started
01:29 - and then it just kept on starting new /USR/BIN/CRON processes
for some time until no more processes could be run.
Another related question is: What number of processes can actually run on

Why? And is this limit too low?
