My daily script, which should run at 3:15 PDT, is now running at
10:15PDT, which is 1815GMT, I think.
Whew, I thought it was just me seeing this! I couldn't understand why I
was getting emails about my daily jobs in the middle of the afternoon!
This is still the case for me on my -current machine. I'm reinstalling from
last night's -current now.
In my case, my machine's /etc/localtime is to US/Eastern, and the time is
accurate. At then end of the system boot process, I see:
Sat May 15 14:48:53 EDT 2010
NetBSD/i386 (skaro.distal.com) (console)
But, I'm still getting my /etc/daily and such output at 4 hours after the time
in crontab. Noting the original email message about running in PDT (GMT -0700)
running at +7 hours, there's clearly a relationship there. (I'm in EDT,
I saw some changes to cron come by recently. Has this been fixed? After I
finish loading from last-nights sources, I'll set up some cron jobs and see if
I can evoke it again.
Christos fixed it while ago for me. Did you update cron? I remember
doing a "crontab -e" and having it update the crontab, too.
