Are you aware that the global crontab (/etc/crontab) has a user field:

# m h dom mon dow user  command

While the crontab of a user (reachable by running crontab -e as a user) does not?

# m h  dom mon dow   command

This drove me crazy once: cron was failing relatively silently...

That said, try and make a very simple cron entry, maybe directly inline, that touches a file in a writeable folder. This way you'll figure out if it's your script or cron that's being difficult.
