This document (7007123) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SLES10.3 has a bug in cron where depending of the date specified it
will run the job twice when set under cron.daily.
Customer has set the variable DAILY_TIME="00:15" in /etc/sysconfig/cron.
According to the documentation this should execute cron.daily at 00:15.
But the customer noticed that now cron daily was run twice, on 00:00 and 00:15
cron-4.1-45.36.1 for SLES 10 SP4 has the fix.
