Well, I did get a response very quickly after I emailed them, though 
it wasn't very reasonable, IMHO.  The response was about me faking the user
agent (which as I said earlier I had put in to try to track down this
very problem).. After I got that response, I quickly made two more crontab
entries, one with and one without the -useragent, and both worked successfully
(as in, I got the page I expected to get), and I just got my regular 4pm

So I guess I'll stop bugging this list about this, I'm guessing that it's 
a sporadic problem that's unlikely to be figured out by either side.
