Yes, it is running and I expect it to go for another
10 to 15 minutes.  I will get your the result asap.

Thank you for your invariable assistance.
I am getting excited.

I didn't really expect that to make a difference.  What does your .pgpass look 
like?  What OS user are you running the cron job as?  Do you have SELINUX 
enabled?  Can you run the script with the strace command I sent in a previous 
email so that we can see what's really going on?
