if you're not sure what user it's running as, try running "whoami" in
the crontab. although if it's root's crontab it should definitely be
running as root.
I assume if you run this progam yourself it doesn't give that error.
Trying putting "strace -f br" or "ltrace -Sf br" instead of "br" in cron
and see what it's doing when it fails. (you'll need the strace and
ltrace packages respectively)
