No periodic daily?

I'm having a strange issue with one of my boxes. It's the router for our DS3:
FreeBSD router.mycompany.com 7.0-STABLE FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE #0: Mon May
19 01:16:12 PDT 2008
root at router.mycompany.com:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386
The machine has stopped sending periodic daily and security reports,
though I'm getting weekly and monthly reports. I see nothing in the
syslogs to indicate any problems.
If I issue, as root, the command 'periodic daily', it just hangs until
I press ^C to break out of it, then it comes back with
router# periodic daily
(Interrupt -- one more to kill letter)
and sends an email, with the following contents:
Removing stale files from /var/preserve:
Cleaning out old system announcements:
Removing stale files from /var/rwho:
But nothing else - certainly much less than I get from my other boxes.
Running 'periodic security' also hangs, but when I interrupt with ^C,
I get no output at all, either at the prompt or in email.
I plan on rebooting it this evening - is there anything I can do in
the meantime to diagnose the issue?
