After some check I thought the fact was:

* I do it on willow but forget these things and think everything is
still the same as what it was before nightshade-reinstall
* cronie daemon stops working
* I run crontab -e on nightshade (I remembered incorrectly that I'm
using crontab on nightshade)
* I find my crontab empty and think there's something wrong on nightshade
* I install crontab.before_nightshade_reinstall on willow crontab
* at the same time DaB. publishes the notice that he stopped cronie
and restarted it
* I don't remember the existence of cronie and think he's talking about crontab
* Now my jobs run twice. I think one runs on willow and another on nightshade
* I check my crontab on willow and nightshade and make sure only one exists.
* I still find my jobs run twice so I send the mail.
Yes, that makes things even more complex.
