Hmmm - that is strange.
My only thought off-hand would be that someone has managed to install /etc/crontab as a personal crontab?
Try 'crontab -l' as root and any other possible users to see if they have a crontab that is similar to the /etc/crontab
Just a thought......
Your suggestion was dead on - I'm not sure why I kept overlooking this. For some reason the entire contents of /etc/crontab were duplicated in root's crontab. I got rid of it last night, and lo - only one run of the scripts.
Thanks very much for the help!
