AIDE bizarre results when run from cron.daily.

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello. I created a small script to run AIDE daily. (maybe I stole it from someone, it has been so long I'm not really sure) It runs aide --check and outputs the results to /var/log/aide. In any event, here is my issue: When I run the cron manually as root, it runs fine. AIDE will occasionally find something that has changed, but by and large, it runs fine. When the cron kicks off automatically it comes back with a ridiculous amount of lies. It states that many files have been changed, and that their new hashsum is <NONE>. The overwhelming majority of these files are things like /b (HowTos)
