Not even sure where to start looking...maybe this is fallout from the CDB integration (maybe missing something related to the passwd/login/ group

I reported this problem a few days ago on current-users, and christos
said I hit a bad time during the update and the problem was already
fixed. I haven't had a chance to try a newer snapshot yet to verify

I updated an i386 machine to -current a couple of times within the last month, and the prior update was with May 6 code. I've been getting that machines /etc/daily runs at post 7am, vs the scheduled port 3am. I must admit I'd assumed it was some purposeful scheduling change and hadn't thought to look at the crontab, but no, it's still scheduled for 3:15am.

I'm EST/EDT on this machine (US/Eastern zoneinfo), and this has been going on for at least two weeks. I just last night updated to a more current -current (early AM May 17) and will see tonight/tomorrow where it fires...
