kcron does not work with vixie cron.

Hi there,

I have vixie cron installed.
When I use kcron as root, I have the changes saved in /etc/crontab but 
the file seems to be incompatible with vixie cron.
Here is an example of the file:
# Backup to Ben
30 19 * * 4     /home/harel/SysAdmin/backup     
/home/harel/SysAdmin/backup Ben
# The notorious updatedb
30 20 * * 5     /etc/cron.daily/slocate /etc/cron.daily/slocat

It seems that there is an extra argument so that argument 1 is the 
program itself (like execl ?) but that doesn't seem to work.
