And, deviating a little from the original topic, cron and time zone

My laptop has been up since January, when I brought it back into the
country, and changed /etc/localtime back to its usual setting. OK, I
arguably should have restarted cron after doing that, but it would have
been nice of cron to notice at some point in the last 11 and a half months
that it's now running in a different timezone to where it thought it was
when it started. :)
