ssh batch troubles

I am having problems running ssh in a batch job, specifically a cron
script.  I am trying to pass a command to another box using ssh.

I have tried the -n and -o "BatchMode yes" options to ssh but the job
hangs just before it is due to close.

Running the script from the command line works OK.

Any clues?
