Default Cron running but not working


Two of my CentOS machines are affected with a very strange disease. After removing a few faulty lines that caused errors in my logs in one user's crontab, my other scripts ran by cron stopped being ran.

However, it looks much like cron is running...
# service crond status
crond (pid 23242) is running...
# ps auwx | grep crond
root     23242  0.0  0.0   5264  1108 ?        Ss   Jul15   0:00 crond
root     26436  0.0  0.0   3912   664 pts/1    S+   10:16   0:00 grep crond
And there is nothing (and I mean nothing) in my logs to help me find the cause of this problem.

Any ideas?
