I don't see HOME being mentioned in any of the documentation I checked,
so we can't rely on it being set (for "system" cron jobs, not those in
user crontabs). anacron on lightwave sets SHELL and PATH:
If the backup job depends on a specific value of $HOME (why?), it should
set it explicitly. Alternatively we could move it from /etc/cron.daily
to the crontab of root (IIRC Vixie cron - which we use on lightwave -
allows root to have a regular crontab).
