Well ... for me it was an important and releasing thing to purge anacron.

My computer is up most of the time and so scripts always got run twice.
This slows down my 'puter very much :-(

Even after being down for a while, I rather wait until cron runs again then
suddenly haveing all scripts come up at once :(
