ebook-convert segfault

Hi,

I'm getting a segfault when I try to run ebook-convert using cron, however, the same command works fine from the command line. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and this error started after I upgraded to the latest version of Calibre.

Any suggestions on how to fix this? Why would it work from the command line but not from cron?

Crontab entry:
ebook-convert /home/user/recipes/ars_technica.recipe /home/user/ebooks/ars.mobi

Error in var/log/messages:
kernel: [240510.690619] ebook-convert[17469]: segfault at 4 ip 00793a7d sp bfbec1d0 error 4 in libpython2.7.so.1.0[728000+134000]

Thanks in advance for any help.

When you run something from cron always use a full path to the executable and make sure the environment variables are the same.
