comment Running executable from Crontab
You might be able to see what is going on by redirecting stderr and stdout to a temp file from cron... "exim -bpc >>/tmp/crontest 2>&1" I suspect it has to do be something going wrong with that part of the command since you are getting an email. After that runs you can cat /tmp/crontest and see if there is anything there.

comment Running executable from Crontab
Well it's not at all inconceivable that it would run perfectly from a login shell and then fail from cron. But yeah, it's unlikely that cron does not have /usr/bin in its path. Sure, sorry that didn't help.

comment Saving a process ID when detaching a command in Bash
Yeah, I think the problem is stdout is the output of the command you're running, but the id is coming from the shell. So to capture it with stdout you'd have to actually execute it in a subshell some how and capture the stdout of that. Just thinking out loud about what's going on, haven't tested that.
