That's all OK. Note that my cron jobs were working fine before I updated
to 1.3.12-1. Apart from the update, I've not changed anything.
Cron is running as a service using the SYSTEM account (UID=18).
/etc/passwd is readable by SYSTEM (the protection is 644).
What other information would be useful to help track this down?
