I've found the actual line from which the cron was crashing.
By mistake I've uncommented:
#1,31 0-5 * * * root adjkerntz -a
and that's in a jail enviornment, when I commented it again the cron
started working as expected.
I agree that it's stupid ti call this command when in jail, because jail
don't have perms to touch system time,
but is this behaviour of the cron a suggested one? cron to die if it
I don't think so? what would you say?
