Needing to restart proftp weekly?

    I have an unusual problem with proftp. My install of ISPConfig seems to be working flawlessly on a FC5 installation. I can log in using my FTP client all week long locally and remotely but every Sunday morning it gives me an error stating "response not understood". ProFTP is still running on the server. Simply restarting ProFTP sets everything back to working order with no error messages. Is there any cron jobs running weekly that could upset ProFTP, or is this a bug in ProFTP itself? Anybody else encounter this? Thanks in advance for your time, Dave

    To me this looks as if it is caused by a weekly cron job. What''s the output of
    ls -la /etc/cron.weekly
    ? What's the output of
    crontab -l
    (you must run this as root)?
