Description of problem:
After I rebooted my laptop on Jan 19, 2016, cron stopped executing my crontab as it failed to load the user crontab:

$ systemctl status crond.service -l

It seems to be duplicate of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1298192 . The kernel-4.3.3-303.fc23 https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2016-b59fd603be should fix your problem
Comment 2 Petr Lautrbach 2016-01-22 05:41:06 EST
It the kernel doesn't fix your problem feel free to reopen this bug.
