The checking of /usr happens in cfagent.conf, not in update.conf,
so the problem is in your main config.

I think linolil's real question is, "What do the messages 'Tidying Spool Directories' and 'Tidying home directories' really mean, and do I need to worry about them?". I've included the relevant sections of the output below.

I think I can answer at least part of the question. I'm guessing that, since cfengine has special intelligence recognising home directories, it deals with them separately, and so the part that says "Tidying home directories" really means "...if any 'home' tidy actions exist", ie. there may be no action corresponding to the message. The Spool one I can't answer.

        Can someone confirm the guess, or answer the spool question?

        Thanks,
