Hi, Cameron.  I can't understand what's happening.  I have been through every 
logfile that might have the remotest connection with this, and can find no 
sign of the messages.  For that matter, I can find no sign that the cron job 
has actually run today - except that files created as late as 11:40 today are 
on the backup disk.

I'm totally foxed!
