[Users] PATCH for small cron prob. in /etc/init.d/vz

The init script in vzctl-3.0.18 installs the file:
as part of its startup,  what is strange as that on CentOS5 at least the 
last mod of the folder /etc/cron.d is NOT updated!

What this means its that CRON does not know about the new file as as 
such does not run it.

Hope this info helps,

Here is a quick patch to fix the prob:
