Bugs in CSWcas-crontab

Hi All,

I've just released an update to CSWcas-crontab to the unstable catalog. It
contains fixes for two bugs that both had the potential to damage crontab
files when packages relying on this class action script were uninstalled
(eg: during an update).

The first is that the logic used to remove lines from a users' crontab
would remove the intended lines _and_ all following lines.

The second is that any lines not removed by the first bug that contained
backslashes would have the backslashes stripped thus altering the commands
in the crontab entry.

I believe both of these issues are fixed
in cas_crontab-1.50,REV=2014.08.17. If you use any packages that depend on
cas_crontab, please ensure you update cas_crontab prior to updating any of
those packages.

Thanks to Wolfgang Goetz for pointing out these problems.
