I presume that you are using the command:

crontab -e

as root in order to edit the crontab?...rather than trying to do it directly using vi?

What editor are you useing, vi, emacs? How are you exiting the editor after inserting the crontab entry? And at exit is the cursor on the line following the last crontab line?
