Counld be different environment variables set, different working

That's what I'm trying to find out. The cron man pages are ... empty
on the subject.

Any diagnostic when it hangs?

Not that I can tell. It runs on schedule but it never clears it's
locks (which it puts on files at is edits them) as it is supposed to;
and it does when run from the shell.

So it truth, it's not so much that it "hangs", it does terminate, but
it doesn't honor it's lock time-outs like it does when run outside of

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.
