Hi Richard,

Odd idea: have you thought of using 'journalctl' to see if any of the 
main configuration files are being deleted by accident?  The --since 
switch will let you narrow down the amount of information to a specific 
date range.  Often I have a script-in-a-script etc. in my crontab queue, 
and conflicting commands cause issues.
