It would seem that your cron job is not actually generating this file
regularly.  The one you sent previously clearly said that you had 1.5.19-4
of the cygwin package installed.  You cannot have two versions installed.
So I presume that the cron entry to automatically generate this file hasn't
run since before you upgraded.  Since you would have had to stop the cron
(and any other service) to upgrade (without reboot at least), I can see
the possibility of you doing this and not restarting it again.  But that's
just speculation.

No.  You apparently ran '/bin/cron-config' and answered "no" to the question:

   Do you want the daemon to run with ntsec? (yes/no)

Yes, I'd agree.
