Taper problems

I wonder if anyone can give me a clue here:

I run taper to backup some directories. If I run it by hand it always works
fine (running as root).

If I run unattended but actually started from the bash prompt (/sbin/taper -U
@fileset) it runs OK. When run as a script which repeats the bash prompt
command it runs OK.

BUT - when I have a line "27 0 * * mon-fri /sbin/taper -U @fileset" it aborts
with the line that it cannot start a child process. It reads the fileset OK but
simply won't complete.

Any ideas?

Anyone using the free version of Arkeia or what do you folk use for unattended
backups?
