On the 10th day of November, Webb Sprague said to me:

Is it 4:00 exactly or 4:22?
Red Hat's cron.* are set by default as follows:
01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
02 4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
22 4 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly
So, around 4am on a Sunday is when cron.weekly gets run. I would wager
little gold effigees of Sacagawea against Krispy Kremes that this is where
your problem lies.
Check out the scripties in /etc/cron.weekly and run them manually. This
will most likely turn up your culprit.
