My guess it is just a forgotten test job :-)

I run several rsnapshot backup jobs as root, but I think the culprit is:

test -x /usr/lib/cron/run-crons >/dev/null 2>&1

which checks scripts in cron.hourly, cron.daily etc. on the following
schedule:

*/15 * * * *


But that would not explain your statement, "a test message from cron once
a minute" as that would provide an email 4 times per hour, 60/15.
