I would also put run_makemandb=NO in /etc/daily.conf for slow machines.

At least some of the slow machines lack a RTC and it can take a while to
pick up the correct time from an external source. This can mean that
cron starts up some daily tasks at the wrong time.

I would also guess that most of the slow machines are not left running
continuously. Maybe we need to look at what other things would normally
be run by cron.
