Yay!  You might want to add this to the cron.README documentation:

my mkpasswd ... > /etc/passwd created some password entries thus:

blah:unused:blah:blah:LastName, FirstName,U-blah,S-blah

LastName, FirstName is *no good*.

I changed all LastName, FirstName to FirstName LastName and cron
is happy.
