Debian Release: 3.0

config of cron package use by default /etc/crontab file:
25 6    * * *   root    test -e /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report
/etc/cron.daily
47 6    * * 7   root    test -e /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report
/etc/cron.weekly
52 6    1 * *   root    test -e /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report
/etc/cron.monthly


unfortunately cron package not depend anacron package.
without install anacron, temporary files are not deleted,
and waste disk space.

proposed solution:
1. install anacron package
2. reedit /etc/crontab file to remove anacron package references.

Right. This is correct. Cron does not depend on anacron. *IF* anacron
is installed, it will run the the 'run-parts' commands. Otherwise, cron
rons them itself.
