Cron Problems... please help

Greetings... we have the new 6.0.0 installed on our servers and seem to have a bit of a problem.

When we run a line similiar to the following via cron:
php -q -f /path/to/script.php /path/to/folder cron 0 0

It would run with NO problems. And if we were to run this via SSH, it would also run with NO problems... However, with the upgrade to 6.0.0, this seemed to takea toll for the bad. NOW, the cron does not work anymore (seems to fail), but continues to work flawlessly from SSH.

Note, the above file requires ZEND (which is installed properly). When I get the cron email, it shows me something completely different. It shows me this:

Failed loading /usr/local/lib/ioncube/  
undefined symbol: zend_execute_internal 
Failed loading /usr/local/Zend/lib/  
undefined symbol: zend_execute_internal Zend 


[lots of ZEND code here..., and then....]

Fatal error:  Call to undefined function:  dbconnect() in 
/path/to/script.php on line 43
Of course, /path/to/script.php and /path/to/folder are replaced with the actual file names, but does anyone have a clue what could be causing this? Again, it DOES work via SSH Command prompt.
