This might have been it. I did add some line feeds in the entry (always
using crontab -e) but that didn't work. So I fired it up again, erased
the existing entry, typed it again with a couple extra line feeds and
sure enough it worked.

Yep, you're right again. Somewhere I had gotten the impression that
users had to be logged in for their crontab stuff to work. But I guess
that wouldn't be terribly useful.
Thanks for your help it's all working very well now,
