I verified that cron indeed works by manually putting a crontab file at
So, it seems that crontab tries to change the effective uid, which doesn't
work for normal (or even Administrator) users. Is this
necessary? Wouldn't this mean that crontab works for nobody, unless you
add some (dangerous) rights to these users?
/usr/doc/Cygwin/cron.README doesn't mention anything about this.
Any ideas? Does anyone have crontab working?
