writes "I recently set up a cron job that runs as my slash user, and is set to
execute nightly at 4:00 AM -- No rocket science here. The cron job
works fine, but I've noticed some odd behavior. Specifically, when
the 'dailyStuff' script runs, the program that I'm using in my cron job
is being executed again.
The program that I am running from the cron job is a shell script I
have placed in my /home/slash directory -- is it possible that dailyStuff
is finding it somehow? I didn't see anything in either the dailyStuff
or the slashd code that indicated that it would run arbitrary code in the
$datadir. I doubt the slashd process knows anything about crontab
files -- does it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated."
