Abort Trap for cron-jobs in 5.3

Hi all,
I've got four servers that all have the same problem: when jobs get
started from Cron, they die after some time with an "Abort trap". Jobs
that are dying are:

/usr/libexec/atrun >> /var/log/cron 2>&1
/usr/bin/nice -10 /usr/local/bin/zsh /root/bin/sendBarkMail.sh > /dev/null 2>&1

I also get this on virtually every shell-script that uses tar, leaving my
filesystem littered with bsdtar.core files.

Running these jobs from the command prompt works fine. Any suggestions on
what may be causing them to die from cron? sendBarkMail.sh simply moves
mails from one folder to another periodically
