No, you should not assume that running the command from an interactive shell
is the same environment that a RC startup script or a cron job runs under.
Adding an "echo $PATH" somewhere would probably give you more information, but
without a more specific error message, I'll repeat my guess.

involves jedi mind tricks! :-) ]
