Crashes When Running from Cron Job

First my thanks for various suggestions on how to reply to digest. I
have taken the advice and opted to Off the digest which makes life far
simpler I hope.
My efforts with running --pvr switch from cron job have had mixed
success. It appears that when the download fails part way through, the
system locks up with get_iplayer still running but nothing happening.
Latest example was from last night when Silent Witness failed. I erased
the partial file this morning and did a straight --get run which went
fine (at max tariff!) but I cannot now run --pvr. I get the following
ERROR: Quitting - process is already running
The lock file contains the number 24706.
This is second time this has happened.
The relevant entry in my pvr-list is:-
pvrsearch = Silent_Witness
search0 = Silent Witness
My prefs are set as:-
Options in '/home/alastair/.get_iplayer/options'
tvmode = flashhd,flashvhigh,flashhigh,flashstd,flashnormal
flvstreamer = /usr/bin/flvstreamer
Before I try and kill the process that is still running are there any
logs which I should report here which would help?
the cron job runs at 02:05 each night.
