I also have some init still looking for the no-longer extant /dev/hda, et al.
Also unable to find it fgrep-ing the /etc tree.
Harmless, do nothing, but .... any ideas? Running Sid.
I can't help on your second problem, but for the first I would create a
fake ntpdate script that writes various details to a file in /tmp.
echo "Parent is: $PPID"
ps -flp $PPID
echo "Args are: $@"
) >> /tmp/ntpdate.out
Should give you some clues when the first cron job runs.
