That's odd.  You'll have to schedule this script to run some time
in the near future, and then stop cron.  Run cron manually, as
root, specifying at least the following debugging options and
watch out when the scheduled event tries to run for interesting
output on your terminal:

   # cron -x load,misc,pars,proc

The meaning of these is explained in the manpage of cron, where
all the rest of the debugging options are listed too.
