The code above removes the files in /var/spool/cron/lastrun/

So the lines "rm" lines in /etc/crontab seems redundant to me, aren't they?
It may even be worse. Assume for the daily cron that the
script /usr/lib/cron/run-crons has been executed at 03:55, and it has set the
lock file. What happens now is that at 04:14 the lock file is being removed.
Meaning that at 04:15 the daily script run again, while that should not
happen.... Bug?
