Lester, I know this is a bit late, so disregard this if you've already 
found the solution

it would be a good idea to do a print_r(wp_next_scheduled('test')); just 
to make sure that it hasn't gotten itself scheduled when you were 
testing something earlier, also try renaming your hook and your function 
to something else, just in calse there is a name colision.  There would 
be no error reported if there was, it would just do nothing.

I've got a *fairly* extensive post on how to schedule events in 2.1 
. You seem to know what you're doing anyway, but there may be something 
in there that's a help.
