the sample solution appears to count 2 distinct processes as one process if they start at the same time despite having different names and runtimes... crontab: 0 4 * 8 * process-1 0 4 * 8 * process-2 estimates: process-1 1 process-2 2 output: " command invocations: process-1 30 process-2 30 process-1 60 2 " is this a bug? what are we expected to return as the most frequent command if multiple commands have the same number of monthly invocations?

I think you've misunderstood the project's requirements. The second word of the final output line is the "the total number of commands invoked" (Project Requirements #10), and this example correctly reports 30+30 = 60. It's not the total number of times the most frequent command is invoked.
