After upgrading my system to 5.0, cron goes sometimes missing. This is not
100% reproducable, but often happens at system startup (i.e. init running
/etc/rc) - when I log in as root and run "/etc/rc.d/cron start" manually
it always seems to work and cron keeps running.

Maybe some resource limit problem preventing the inital fork?
