Well, the thing was a half hour longer than scheduled, nothing bumping
it.  I think probably changing the command to --dd-grab-all might be the
ticket so it overwrites the whole database nightly.  It only takes 2
minutes usually to run, so I think that might be the ticket, unless
someone thinks that is a bad idea?
