cronjobs on Ubuntu

There's some network problems in the office, and my cron jobs are interrupted. In syslog, after the last successful CRON call of my job (at May 21 21:58:01), I see one hour of "CRON[4428]: User not known to the underlying authentication module", and after that my cron jobs never appears in the log anymore. That's about 36 hours ago. Yesterday I've been working using this account on this machine for the whole day, so there's no authentication problem anymore. It seems cron just never resumed from the failure.

Have to run "sudo /etc/init.d/cron restart".

BTW, the account is a NIS one. The Network is the Computer™.
