Wow, you're right.  I just tried it.  That is truly F-ed up.

My Solaris box does not have any man pages, so I can't look it up 
locally.  I wonder if that only applies to the two date fields, or the 
others as well.  I would hate for my backups here...

0 3 * * * backup.sh # back up every night at 3am

... to run every minute from 3:00 to 3:59 and then every hour on the hour!
