Thanks for the suggestion. With no other solution in sight (IPA is a while away), we have taken this approach.

comment How big (in bits) is a Unix UID?
Most systems use /etc/login.defs which does have UID_MAX set for the highest usable UID value, 60000 on any system I've checked.

comment Postfix forwarding to GMail address
If the original mail is coming from gmail, then this is definitely what is happening. Gmail fingerprints the mails based on the headers to deduplicate them. Forwarders without any header modification can get caught by this.

comment Invalid format output from ps etime
NTP doesn't run through cron but adding some other traps around the commands points to time being the issue. The commands all have just started or died when we catch them like this.

comment Invalid format output from ps etime
etimes isn't supported by ps on this host. Its old and due to be upgraded. I'll add that any time the invalid format comes back, 1158050441-07:00 is constant. Its only the seconds that change.

Check for a line saying "Binlog Dump". Host usually appears up there.
