Hello,

Since I switch to FC10, I have the cron.weekly starting 2 times:
This is what I have in my crontab:

# run-parts
01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
02 0 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
11 0 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly

The crontab is started at 0:11 (on the Sunday), ie. at midnight, but
also at 12:00 (on the sunday), it looks like that their is a confusion

What make you think it runs at 12:00?  The crontab is only running it at
00:11.
It does run at 00:11 and 12:11 on Sunday, I know because I do see it:
It is a backup and it takes a while.
In addition, the .cron file make a sendmail to root, so I now.
