Should it? man 5 crontab says:
Step values can be used in conjunction with ranges. Fol-
lowing a range with ``/<number>'' specifies skips of the
number's value through the range. For example, ``0-23/2''
Steps are also permitted after an asterisk, so if you want
to say ``every two hours'', just use ``*/2''.
But you're using 3/15 in the minutes field. Could that be it? Perhaps
3-48/15 would work better...

Not sure I understand you here. Isn't that OK, that the daemon is
running? Or did you really want to *restart*, not *start*, it?
