Two things to check
1) what are the usr crontabs ?  Perhaps you are running something in root's
crontab ?
2) check the /etc/cron.* directories to see if you accidentally made a copy
of a file.  I for example usually make a copy of a file if i'm going to edit
it so I could easily do something like :

prompt# cp /etc/cron.daily/slocate.cron /etc/cron.daily/slocate.cron.orig
prompt# vi /etc/cron.daily/slocate.cron
prompt# logout

and then cron woould be running slocate twice (slocate.cron and
slocate.cron.orig)
