On Feb 14 I upgraded to KRUD 7.0+ (2000-11-03 version).
Ever since the following messages show up in "/var/log/messages" at
regular intervals. Every 10 minutes in the case of the "rmmod" message,
and houry, daily, monthly, etc for the others.

lines from /var/log/messages:
Feb 21 16:40:00 saturn CROND[14097]: (root) CMD (   /sbin/rmmod -as)
Feb 21 17:01:00 saturn CROND[14109]: (root) CMD (run-parts /etc/cron.hourly) 
Feb 20 04:02:01 saturn CROND[11520]: (root) CMD (run-parts /etc/cron.daily) 

These things are now the bulk of my system log file. How do I stop these
recurrent entries from being made? If I "su" and "run-parts /etc/cron.hourly"
no stdout or stderr is generated, and no e-mail is being sent to root.
No changes were made to my "/etc/syslog.conf" file, so it "appears" to have
something to do with going from KRUD 6.2 to 7.0.
