I have updated the version of cron on cygwin.com to 3.0.1-15.

Thanks to Pierre Humblet for the following patch:

  Crontab now changes group membership of the crontab files to be
  ADMINISTRATORS, to allow access from any privileged process.
  Modify cron_diagnose to:
  - check the new crontab file group setting.
  - verify access of /var/run, /usr/sbin/cron.exe and /usr/sbin/sendmail
    by Administrators (instead of SYSTEM) and the local user.
  - get the system mounts directly from the registry.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
