>I have been running cron for over a year now without any problems until recently. Typically I leave my PC running XP on all day and then hibernate it very late in the evening, turning it back on each morning. Cron would run without fail executing as expected until sometime after 11/21. Around that time I used setup to update all out of date programs, and 2 that updated were cygrunsrv and cron. After that update, cron no longer performs anything in my crontab once the PC has been hibernated and then turned back on. Rebooting or restrting cron by executing "cygrunsrv -E cron" then "cygrunsrv -S cron" fixes the problem everytime. The ps output always shows cron even when cron doesn't work.

Do you google?
For future reference, this list prefers that you *attach* the output of
cygcheck rather than including it in the context of the email message.
Attaching helps limit 'false positive' hits when searching the archives.
TIA for you help in this matter.
