Description Sitsofe Wheeler 2005-01-28 17:20:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040804 Galeon/1.3.17

Description of problem:
Logwatch does not output information about things like orphan crontab entries unless the detail level is set to high. This seems wrong since an orphan crontab entry should be exceptional rather than regular and as such might be something to investigate (although is mostly harmless).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a crontab for a user that does not exist
2. Let cron report an error in /var/log/cron like:
Jan 24 20:29:01 x crond[4567]: x ORPHAN (no passwd entry)
3. Run /etc/log.d/logwatch --print --service cron --detail low
(or med instead of low)

Actual Results:  No indication of ORPHAN entries.

Expected Results:  Indication of ORPHAN entries.
