Are you properly defining FULL path for all executables in the script?
It is possible the script works on command line because your shell has
the PATH variable defined where crontab doesn't. Another LESS gracefull
dirty workaround is to add the sourcing of your login file or add the
PATH declaration to the top of the script.
