Hmm.  And from where did you think I pulled out that one? :^)

,----[ syslog.conf(5) ]
|        The facility is one of the following keywords: auth, auth╜
|        priv, cron, daemon, kern, lpr, mail, mark, news,  security
|        (same  as  auth),  syslog,  user,  uucp and local0 through
|        local7. 

As I wrote in my previous message, ever since I added "cron.!info;" to
the line that pipes to /dev/xconsole, I am not seeing the exim cron
notifications any more.
