It's expect that to be more of an environemt problem -- something is
different when running under cron.

You can try setting the environment variable SPIDER_QUIET=1 when running
the spider to stop output.
swish-e, on the other hand, writes messages to stdout. If you want its
output to stderr use the -E option. You can specify a file if you like,
but you should also be able to redirect stderr to a file as you are doing.
I'm not so sure I'd run the command in the background when running from
Without testing, I'd probably do something like
SPIDER=QUIET=1 swish-e -S prog -c swish.conf -E -v0
and then if there's any output (like an error) you get email from cron.
Or just capture and do something:
SPIDER=QUIET=1 swish-e -S prog -c swish.conf -E -v0 2> swish.log || echo swish.log
