I have updated the version of cron on cygwin.com to 3.0.1-13.

This version adds a patch by Xavier Nodet:
- Only reopen stdio file descriptors on /dev/null if daemon has forked.
- Resync timer if time difference is unusually big.  This solves problems
  with hanging cron after hibernation.

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.
