Rather than asking someone here who probably uses a different
operating system than what you have, why not test it? Seems like
it'd take only about 2 minutes to test, and then you'd be REALLY
sure. Just use cron to run this python program:
out = open("/mydir/test.txt", "w")
out.write("this is a test\n")
and see whether it happens.
