OK, I'm a bit sheepish to admit what the problem appears to have been: 
wrong ownership on the crontab file.  I've made it owned by root now, 
and this seems to have fixed my issues.

Thanks for Alberto for getting me to re-examine my cron file, which got 
me thinking about permissions and ownership of the file, after seeing no 
problem with the content itself.
