Cron daemon is lauched in /etc/rc. And it has the right permisions:
lupus:~ $ ls -acl /usr/sbin/cron
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root bin 32768 Jul 18 10:43 /usr/sbin/cron

There is no information in logs (cron, messages,...) and dmesg don't show
me anything about it.
I haven't rebuilt or upgraded my system recently.....
But why cron can't be launched at start time and I can launch it without
problems after system boot?
