Cron currently use argv[0] as its syslog identity, which usually
includes the full path. The easiest way out is to more or less
s/ProgramName/getprogname()/, but it also changes the name to
uppercase for subprocesses, which would get lost with that change. Is
this undocumented (?) feature something we wish to retain? It still
logs what it's doing:

May 15 11:00:00 blubb /USR/SBIN/CRON[469]: (root) CMD (/usr/bin/newsyslog) 

so I don't really see the the need for uppercase here.
