Check your crontab jobs then.
* Do you have any local changes to the system crontab in
`/etc/crontab'? If yes, what are those changes, and what do the
scripts or other commands they run look like?
* Do you have a user-specific crontab file for `root' in
`/var/cron/tabs/root'? If yes what does it contain?
