Default Wrong file owner

My logwatch is giving the following.

Wrong file owner (/var/spool/cron/frank):

It's probably happened during uid:gid change.

Should file be root:root,
I have it user:root.

An easy way to check for yourself would be to user another user to
create a crontab file with only a comment line. Or to delete the file
manually and recreate it using crontab -e.

A little test/experimentation can go a long way....

FYI, on the system here (F16) the file is created as "user:root".
