It is your /etc/sysconfig/crontab from before the update. The new
RPM installed a new crontab, and saved the old one as
crontab.rpmsave. This is common when the new version changed the
configuration file format, and you have made changes to the old
version's configuration file. This lets you transfer the information
to the new format, if you need it. (.rpmsave = backup of old
configuration, new file used. .rpmnew = new configuration file, old
file still being used.)
