Inconsistent uppercase CROND in syslog
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:25 EDT
Why do crond identify itself with an uppercase "CROND" in the syslog. All
the other services use lower case. Could it be changed to lowercase to get
some consistent naming of services in the log files.

Be changed to:
Oct 15 08:01:00 myhost crond: (root) CMD (run-parts /etc/cron.hourly)
Also makes the log files a litte easier to read.
The name changing is actually so the child process shows up different
in ps from the master, which is not that bad of an idea. Fixing the
syslog name is easy enough, though. Will be fixed in 3.0.1-57.
