That's just it, I don't have any cron scripts that use here-documents.
Most of my cron jobs are fairly trivial scripts less than 100 lines long.

I'm running on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 system, and my guess is
that the system is running something on my behalf.  But I don't know

At first I was able to ignore the messages because I could not detect
any anomalies.  But now I've reached my threshold where the messages
(sometimes up to about ten in a day) are starting to annoy me.

Thanks again for the replies.
