| Indeed it doesn't. But then:
| [ -e /usr/sbin/sendmail ] && rm -f /usr/sbin/sendmail.exe
| does run.

Except if that if /usr/sbin/sendmail.exe did exist in the first place
(not a dangling link) then cronlog would not have been linked,
for the same reason:
[ -e /usr/sbin/sendmail -o -e /usr/sbin/sendmail.exe ]
and thus the rm -f would not do anything except possibly remove
a dangling symlink. I still don't understand what happened.
