Description Jonathan Kamens 2001-06-11 12:10:48 EDT
The message below sums up the problem:

  Date: Sun, 10 Jun 2001 04:06:39 -0400
  From: root@kamens.brookline.ma.us (Cron Daemon)
  To: root@kamens.brookline.ma.us
  Subject: Cron <root@jik> run-parts /etc/cron.daily

  /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch:

  error: lstat() of directory /var/cache/man/X11R6/cat? failed: No such
file or directory

I'm using tmpwatch-2.7.2-1.  Something like this might be in order, instead
of what's at the end of /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch now:

  for d in /var/{cache/man,catman}/{X11R6/cat?,cat?,local/cat?}; do
      [ -d $d ] && /usr/sbin/tmpwatch -f $d
  done

changed in 2.7.3 and later.

please take a look to bug 47859, where i posted an IMHO interesting patch.

also, even if it is resolved on rawhide a formal errata could be needed to 
close all the different cross dependency bugs related to this same problem
