I had this same thing happen recently on one of my machines, but it was 
one I use for my desktop. They stopped for me when I installed KDE, 
upgrading from enlightenment. I don't know if there's something going on 
with a particular update or not, but honestly, the mails don't even 
appear to be getting generated, which is to say, I don't know if the job 
is even being run. Can you determine if the job is being run for you or not?
