Cron jobs entered via "crontab -l" don't appear to take
effect unless crond is stopped and restarted.
Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-07-13 17:00:59 EDT
"crontab -l" is for listing current jobs, not for entering
new jobs.  Do you mean "crontab <filename>" or "crontab -e",
or what?

I have tested installing a new personal crontab entry, and
crontab properly rescanned it without touching the cron daemon.
