Hey Martin-

	I am working on rewriting the timing mechanism for cron like  
workers. I had one other person report a similar issue when one  
worker is still running and the next one kicks off. So for now you  
can either try to patch it yourself or wait a bit longer until the  
next release.

Cheers-
