Strange problem 1

I have two different problems which I hope someone out there 
can help me with.

Firstly, my FreeBSD 3.2 box has suddenly started complaining
about atrun.  I have checked the crontab against another
FreeBSD 3.2 box and it looks fine, I have made sure that
/root exists and is OK but every five minutes I get a new
mail like this:

	From root Tue Apr 11 08:30:00 2000
	Date: Tue, 11 Apr 2000 08:30:00 GMT
	From: root (Cron Daemon)
	To: root
	Subject: Cron <root at dev> root   /usr/libexec/atrun
	X-Cron-Env: <SHELL=/bin/sh>
	X-Cron-Env: <PATH=/etc:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin>
	X-Cron-Env: <HOME=/root>
	X-Cron-Env: <LOGNAME=root>
	X-Cron-Env: <USER=root>
	root: not found

I have tried running atrun on its own with -d and that
seems to be OK, /var/at/spool and /var/at/jobs both exist.

What's going on?
