Eh, that will only happen if you try to stop the anacron service,
otherwise the timeout would apply to anacron _itself_ failing to start,
not to any of its jobs...

See, someone or some script told systemd to stop anacron (or maybe to
stop-and-start/restart it). THIS is causing the undesired behavior.
I am not sure what the proper fix would be in this case, depends on what
caused the attempt to stop (or maybe restart) the service.
