find which program is calling cron every 10 minutes - using ubuntu intreoid


i have a program/process that is calling cron every 10 minutes but i cant determine which one...

i have stopped various programs listed in system monitor that could be responsible [eg ddclient] but to no avail...

another symptom [which may/may not be relevant] is noticed when rhythmbox is playing a file... the sound dies for the brief period the cron task is running

type
crontab -l
as root and as user
Also take a look in
/etc/cron*

you can run top to see the program that runs at the moment the cron is executed.
