wp-cron fails to schedule posts — at Initial Version

I recently upgraded my very simple WP site to 3.5 where the following was in use:

Theme: Twenty Eleven Plugins: None Activated

I have been completely unable to submit a post for publishing in a future date, when the time occurs, I get a "missed schedule" message.

The schedule entry in cron is as follows:

Next due (GMT/UTC): Jan 4, 2013 @ 11:28 (1357298880)

Schedule: One-off event

Hook: publish_future_post

Arguments: [0]: 358

Increasing the timeout value in cron.php has made no difference.

I will need to remain on a lower release until this is fixed or a diagnosis "kit" is made available.

I am not using any software other that WP produced at this point and feel that the lack of wp-cron documentation and support in the public domain leaves alot of people clocking many hours googling in desperation...

Make a difference in 2013 and get 3.5 development priorities to de-mystify the methods of fixing wp-cron please :o)
