Probably me. We have not been able to get rundig (or more specifically
htmerge) to run from cron for several weeks.

It fails every time it is run from cron. Running it manually (even in the
background) works flawlessly, but running htmerge from cron gets "Word
Sort Failed" every time. Prior to this it worked fine and it still works
fine on a second (nearly identical) machine, but on this machine all 4-5
instances of rundig fail with the same error when run from cron.
