Error running swish-e as cron job

I'm running the latest swish-e on redhat 3 as. Everything's working
great, so I setup a cron job to run every night for indexing. I used
webmin to do this.

My command is this:
swish-e -c /usr/local/bin/oshkosh.config -S prog

When I run it, it works great. If I wait for the schedule to run it, it
says it can't locate swish-e. So, I tried putting in the full path for
swish-e. It sees swish-e fine, but then I get a bunch of errors about
not being able to locate the pm file for converting the pdf files.

Any ideas why this would run fine when I click on Run Now, but not when
it's actually scheduled to run?
