[Bug 271582] cron is not picking up schedule from file in /usr/local/etc/cron.d directory unless you touch the file

--- Comment #3 from andrew@tao11.riddles.org.uk ---
I'm almost convinced that the logic in cron for handling multiple system
crontab files is completely wrong and works only by chance, but I haven't
managed to pin down what the conditions are to make it fail.

Can you show the output of

ls -lT /etc/crontab /etc/cron.d /usr/local/etc/cron.d

and the output of

ls -f /usr/local/etc/cron.d
