trouble running commands non-interactively (e.g. via ssh, cron, at)

I've got DLL version 1.3.6 installed on NT 4.0 SP6.
I'm trying to create/delete user accounts in the domain that the cygwin
box is in.
If I (interactively) login into the cygwin box via ssh, I can successfully
run the "NT Resource Kit" addusers command and the Ms. Exchange "admin.exe"
command to create/delete accounts.
However, If I try to run either of those commands non-interactively
via ssh, they don't work. The commands return with no effect.
At first, I thought the problem was something peculiar about the
addusers and admin commands. So, I wrote perl programs to manage the
accounts. However, the same problem applies to the perl programs - they
work fine when run from an interactive login-shell, but not when run
non-interactively from ssh.
The same problem occurrs when I try to schedule programs via cron or at
- the scheduled programs fail (i don't even know if they run - there's
no log anywhere that I can find; I just know they don't do what they
were intended to do).
