Why does a cron-job (ir_cron) not run after restarting server?

I have the impression that users need to log-in first to init the database in the server process. Only after the login, the cron will start to execute jobs.

We run 10+ databases on 1 OpenERP server process. After one simple restart it seems we have to log-in into every database before cronjobs start running.

Why is that? And how to overcome this?

I think, cron jobs starts runing after the server receives it's first request for page. Not after login. Please check it with a simple print button on the cron function ( in python file). Cheers!!
