Ah-HA!  That'll teach me for searching for /wp_cron\s*\(/ instead of

Hmm.  I think I'm 0 for 2 today on the regexes.  I checked my logs again 
and wp-cron.php is present several times over the past three days.  Who 
knows what I was doing before...  I must need a vacation.

In any case, future posting wasn't working for me a few weeks ago, 
perhaps before masquerade's cron updates.  Can you confirm that it does now?
