cron entry doesn't start


Hi,
i added a crontab entry, which was supposed to start in 2 minutes. I waited and it didn't. Here's the entry:
Code:
pimp:/# crontab -l
# m h  dom mon dow   command
59 23 * * 1 apt-mirror /etc/apt/mirror.list &
The "mirroring" was supposed to launch at 23:59 every Tuesday... It was 23:55 when i finished editing. I then restarted and waited, but no process was launched.

Ideas?

Thanks

Full path doesn't make any difference either for "apt-mirror" or for a custom script of mine, too....
