[launchd-dev] launchd misinterpreting cron ranges?

Sorry, for this slightly off-topic..

I used the following cron lines with Mac OS X 10.4.11 Server, but with  
Mac OS X 10.5.1 Server it doesn't run correctly. It runs the scripts  
every day, versus 1st & 3rd or 2nd or 4th Sunday at 4 AM.

# minute		hour	mday		month	wday	who		command
0			4		1-7,15-21	*		0		root		/path/to/script1
0			4		8-14,22-31	*		0		root		/path/to/script2

Is this a bug or is there a workaround?
