seems that the page for cron jobs has a bug; all though i am not sure if it is the result of something i have done, it does seem to be effecting multiple machines...
when i load up the cron job schedule page, the cron.daily, weekly, and monthly Descriptions do not seem to be showing the proper information:
for example, it looks like this:
root Yes &search= root Yes &search= root Yes &search=
