What did pam record for the user_start?
ausearch --start today -x crond -m user_start

This should show which account the script will run under. The cron daemon should set 
the loginuid to it. That would cause all actions done by the script to be attributed 
to that user.

Also, have you restarted the cron daemon? Maybe in inheritted your account. You can 
check by this:

cat /proc/`ps -C crond -o pid= | tr -d ' '`/loginuid
