With Red Hat 5.9 (Starbuck) All crons are ran at boot.
That causes some problems on my system. I add the crons in
rc.local so when it reboots it automatic. But, then all
the crons run after crond comes up, cause crons to spawn
bad processes. 5.2 didn't do this.
Please this and all bug reports to the RawHide section of the Bugzilla
system. There is the proper place for reports on beta releases.
