Well this is weird!  I'm used to odd problems when you run programs from 
cron but these are almost invariably to do with file permissions or 
stuff in the environment variables not matching the command line 
environment.

I'm using ruby  1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i686-linux] on a RHE 3.0 system.

The program runs fine from command line but gets nonsensical syntax 
errors when run from cron.

Any idea where to look for the problem?
