Unfortunately that has only partially solved the problem.  I'm now getting 
logwatch messages, but no cron ones.  There is a small backup job due to run 
twice daily, and I haven't seen any message for it yet.  The job clearly ran 
this afternoon, as I can see files on the backup drive that were not created 
until this morning.
