It's likely environmental -- make sure you're starting with the same 
path, etc.  Sometimes I'll create a sell script by env'ing to a bash 
script file and append the actual command to execute, chmod a+x the 
script and put that in the cron file.  Then strip out variables until 
you find the missing culprit.

HTH,

Emile
