Failed to lock file /var/spool/cron/root after 5 minutes

Hi All,

I have just upgraded Webmin on my RedHat 7.0 Box to version 1.110 and now I get the following error when I try to update cron jobs.

Failed to save cron job : Failed to lock file /var/spool/cron/root after 5 minutes

How do I fix this problem?
