jerry,

as a question of curiousness, and 'wat' from svr5 days, have you tried
giving ownership of script to root?

also, if you want backup to run only after you are logged off, or after
you have done something needing backup, have script check for 'filename'
and then delete 'filename' as part of closing. this way, you can run
'touch filename' to enable.

or follow as todd suggested.
