Under MacOS 10.2.x, the Control Key is used to bring up a
Contextual menu. The instructions on the Cron Creation Menu say
to use Control-Click to delete a Minute/Hour/Date/Month/Day-of-
Week selected entry. This conflicts with the Contextual Menu
usage of the Control Key. Using Command (Apple/Cloverleaf) in
lieu of the Control key while clicking an entry DOES work (ie: The
code is look for Command not Control even though the docs say
Control). You might want to alter the description on that page for
the MacOS 10.2.x version (if this is possible). I acknowledge in
advance that this is a nitpick but it will help users who need to
alter the run time who try to follow the instructions only to run into
the Contextual Menu issue.

Thank you.
