In my case I have a job with output redirection written to work under sh (as jobs in the crontab run in sh) but the "Run now" button of the webgui run the job with the cronjob user shell (in my case root and tcsh) so the job fail to execute. The job run just fine at the scheduled time.

In brief the jobs started manually from the webgui should use the crontab shell (sh)
