Short answer is no, but the manpage says --follow-dir-symlinks=2 
and --follow-file-symlinks=2 added to the crontab invocation shoulkd at 
least explore the permissions issues if any.  I may have to put that in 
roots crontab as some of that I have no permissions to access. 

What did get scanned this morning was clean.
