I will put some debugging output into the script and wait for cron to
run it again, but there really should be an option in
popularity-contest.conf to enable debugging.

BTW, the use of setsid seems to be wrong, it hides the error code:

# setsid /bin/false ; echo $?

You probably want setsid -w . Or why use setsid at all?
