I do a more general approach; turn off all cron-jobs if anyone is logged 

After installation, this script is run:

if grep "run-parts " >/dev/null /etc/crontab ; then
    cp -f /etc/crontab /etc/crontab.org
    sed s/run-parts\ /run-parts2\ / </etc/crontab.org >/etc/crontab
    echo "crontab changed"
if grep "run-parts " >/dev/null /etc/anacrontab ; then
    cp -f /etc/anacrontab /etc/anacrontab.org
    sed s/run-parts\ /run-parts2\ / </etc/anacrontab.org >/etc/anacrontab
    echo "anacrontab changed"

and /usr/bin/run-parts2 looks like this:


if ! ps -A |grep ssh-agent ; then
    run-parts $@

At least this works for fedora core 1. Don't know about other
