Time for me to post that summary, since I just asked this question two weeks
back and recieved many helpful answers:
And the answer is...
Aquire patch 100058 from Sun. The double cronjob bug is a known potential
bug in SunOS 4.0 through 4.1.1 on both sun3 and sun4 architectures.

Especially John Antrosiglio @ AT&T, who not only knew the patch number, but
offered additional assistance...
A couple suggested an upgrade to a later OS version, but the bug still
potentially exists there, so that is no guarantee to work...
