	the changes made to /etc/daily & co, and the root crontab are
	incompatible with previous versions of these.  eg, a new crontab
	with an old /etc/daily will fail as there is no to: or cc:
	addresses passed to "sendmail -t".  this change was made by
	lukem nearly a year ago:

revision 1.14
date: 1998/09/15 05:06:30;  author: lukem;  state: Exp;  lines: +4 -4

	the end-result of this is that the mail bounces as there is
	no one to deliver it to.

	install a new machine.
	copy all your standard changed files to machine, not realising
	that /etc/daily & co are now incompatible.


	not sure.  why pass To: in the /etc/daily rather than the
	cronjob?  i actually don't see any reason that change was made
	but i'm sure luke will :-)
