Cron runs out of control
I've got a Debian sarge machine, and while I've gone through and removed
pretty much everything from :
if I give cron even a single small job to run, it goes crazy and chews
up all the CPU cycles (and also doesn't respond to being stopped via the
init script - I have to kill it to get rid of it).
I've tried attaching strace to cron, but nothing useful came of it.
Has anyone seen this behaviour before ?
