Subject: Cannot read other user's crontabs as super-user

When running as "root", I have tried to read other users' crontabs using the documented methods but, the read() always fails. There is no error string available from error() either. I have tried: my $crontab = new Config::Crontab( -owner => 'someuser' ); $crontab->read; AND my $crontab = new Config::Crontab(); $crontab->owner('someuser'); $crontab->read; AND my $crontab = new Config::Crontab(); $crontab->read( -owner => 'someuser' ); In all cases, 'someuser' had a non-empty crontab but, the read() always failed. From the command line, I could execute "crontab -l someuser" successfully and see the crontab. My environment (uname -a): SunOS testing 5.10 Generic_127111-06 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V240 Solaris Perl v5.8.8 built for sun4-solaris Config::Crontab v1.21 Cheers, Miranda Ilechukwu miranda@oanda.com
This should be fixed in 1.33; I don't have a reliable SunOS box to verify. Please let me know.
