AT works by default as a 'system' user - and so cannot use any networked

To change this, change the settings in the services entry for 'Scheduler' -
however even then it seems to be a bit hit and miss as you need a login with
access rights on the remote objects you are manipulating.

If I had to guess, I'd say it was due to environment variables which are
when you run the scripts as you, but not when run as an AT job.  This also
a lot with cron jobs and CGI scripts.
