RE: cron: can't switch user context

I cannot see the source of your problem from
the cygcheck listing.  However, you are 
running a Windows .NET server.  I do not know
what effect that might have on cron.

Please run the attached
script.  It is the latest version.  I would
like for you to eliminate the possibility
that you ran an earlier version.
