Humm.  It seems that not many are having this problem, or haven't
noticed it yet.  Strange....

-95 & -97 act the same way.  Guess its time for a bug report, altho 
there are a lot of old bugs that show the same problems we are having.

Cron is only 1 of 4 prograns that were upgraded on the 28th that I'm
having problems with.  I haven't found an cause for this one, yet.

When root logs in on tty1 it shows

Debian GNU/Linux comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, to the extent
permitted by applicable law.
No mail.
-bash: no job control in this shell    <-----------------???????
Loading Custom Keys...
VT1 root-3-ETCH:~#

Sonetime later, the time varies, that tty is logged off, by the system.
Logging in again is normal ie: -bash: no job control in this shell message is
not there.
