crontab issue


I have a problem with my crontab, when I set it up to run every 5 or 10 minutes it works fine, but when I try to set it up to run at a specific time it does no run.

I am running it under root, but same issue with other users.
I checked for time from shell and it is consistent, with the time I try to run.

I have cPanel installed and I have already updated it.

any ideas,
