This is a bit odd...

Just trying to cover all the bases.. Couple of questions:

    * Does this happen when backing up a specific file? Or a specific
      time during the run (e.g.: always 20 minutes into the run)?
    * What happens when you run manually at the time that the cron job
      was failing?
    * Is the user the same on the cron job, as on the manual run?
    * Is the cron problem related to a particular file? (Debug build
      should tell you the file being backed up)
