[Dirvish] Calling dirvish by cron doesn't backup

Just installed dirvish and made an initiation on the backup HDs. So far,
everything worked fine.
Now, when I call the backup from cron, dirvish just runs through within
a second and mails "done" to root. Nothing really happens.
When I call it by hand, backup runs as expected.
Let me give you a few details:
In /etc/crontab there is for instance:
15 09 * * 1-5 root /root/bin/backup-dirvish
This script of mine mounts the backup HD and starts dirvish:
mount /dev/sdg1 /mnt
if [ ! -d /mnt/backups ]
echo Backup HD not found
Having cron calling this script, it will just list the vaults and mail
"done". Calling the script manually as root will make a backup as expected.
