    Just throwing this out there for discussion...

    Shouldn't any cron task for an add-on that's disabled also be disabled?

    I noticed this the other day and found it odd that the cron tasks were still enabled and running for an add-on that was disabled.

    Well my first thought would be it should be disabled for the sake of fault finding. Not much use disabling the add on and you still run around looking for the issue only to find out that the cron is still running causing said issue

    When an add-on is disabled, cron entries associated with that add-on will not run automatically.

    Hmm.. I'm going to have to look closer at the add-on that was causing the race condition on the server then.

    Something was allowing it to run.

    Thanks Mike!
