cron problem



On the weekend an update to cron came out with this new script: /etc/cron.daily/000-delay.cron

What it appears to do is to introduce a random length of delay before cron/anacron run.

What is the point of introducing randomness into a finely tuned system?

When one sets up crontab/anacrontab to go off at precisely a certain time, one expects it to run at the time specified, and not at some random time in the next 68 minutes!

What purpose does this serve?
