Some of my cron jobs are writing their error messages to /dev/null.
It was working fine until yesterday, when I choose to link the netscape
"cookies" file to /dev/null. After that the cron job send me email with
the following message.

/bin/sh: /dev/null: Permission denied

The current permission on /dev/null are as follows,

crw-------   1 root     sys        1,   3 Jul 17  1994 null

Are these the default settings for /dev/null?
