    Description

      Affects Version/s may go back prior to 1.7.

      I was writing my own cron code and was using Moodle's for a reference. I wanted one task to be executed at a specific time like Moodle's statistics. I found that Moodle's admin/cron.php uses the following line to get the time:

      $timetocheck = strtotime("$CFG->statsruntimestarthour:$CFG->statsruntimestartminute today");

      This always seems return midnight. I switch it to the following and I have had more success:

      $timetocheck = strtotime("today $CFG->statsruntimestarthour:$CFG->statsruntimestartminute");

      A diff off of HEAD is attached.
