I have another problem with a cronjob too. If I run the bash script 
manually, everything is ok, if it is executed as cron-job I get a 
message that the signature is invalid. (KMail shows the message in 

I found out that you are not allowed to use LC_ALL="de_DE" and after 
I removed it, it worked, but with a 2nd script, which contained 
LC_ALL too, I have still problems after I removed it. Any ideas? 
Since the script works fine without the cronjob I believe it is an 
"external" problem, maybe a charset problem.
