I get a chance to plug one of my favorite utilities...strace :-).

run strace -p <cron pid> -f -e trace=network

and look for something returning EADDRINUSE or 98.  Then look at the 
arguments, and if it was a socket operation, then look at the arguments to the 
previous operations on that socket, especially bind.
