Updated cronie packages that fix two bugs and add two enhancements are nowavailable for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The cronie packages contain the standard UNIX daemon crond that runs specifiedprograms at scheduled times and the anacron tool that enables crond to run jobsalso on machines that are not continuously switched on.This update fixes the following bugs:* Previously, the anacron process could terminate unexpectedly in cases when theanacrontab file contained incorrect configuration settings. To fix this bug, theconfiguration settings format check has been amended, and the anacron process nolonger crashes. (BZ#1031383)* Prior to this update, the crond pid file could be erroneously removed in casea crond sub-process terminated unexpectedly. With this update, handling of thecrond sub-processes termination has been corrected, and the removal no longeroccurs. (BZ#1082232)In addition, this update adds the following enhancements:* The crond daemon now logs shutdowns. Its proper terminations are thereforedistinguishable from abnormal ones. (BZ#1108384)* The crond daemon now logs errors when jobs are skipped due to getpwnam() callfailures. (BZ#1123984)Users of cronie are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fixthese bugs and add these enhancements.
