I think I've mis-communicated to folks. I'll try this, but my problem is
primarily that we aren't getting Gump run at the assigned times. They used
to work (before I tried putting multiple into a day). Could my abuse of the
machine (sucking way too much up into memory) have messed with cron? Could
cron be hung? Is there a way to debug if cron is trying to run this, or not?

FWIIW: The redirection on the 'cron line' worked to help me find my problem
on Hermes (as I did it) but that is another OS, another implementation. I'll
try this. Hopefully it is just something I changed in the script, or
