Better message for mcron file loading

I was a bit puzzled why mcron was failing; based on the error, I assumed
file permissions, and did not realize the actual problem was my faulty
syntax within a file.

Until we can get more detailed error messages in place, I propose this
patch to make the current generic error we have slightly more helpful.

diff --git a/src/mcron/scripts/mcron.scm b/src/mcron/scripts/mcron.scm

+        "There was an error reading files in your ~/.config/cron (or ~/.cron)
