I created another entry in the crontab with the logging enabled for a
few minutes in the future and watched the output of syslog. At the
time the job was supposed to the the following entry was in the log:

Nov  8 10:48:01 bull /usr/sbin/cron[1123]: (laltest) ORPHAN (no passwd entry)

from this I was able to determine that NSCD wasn't running, restarting
this allowed jobs to run successfully!

Thanks for the help!
