I'm sorry, I do not know why $HOME is resolved to /var/log/.

Is /usr/local/etc/periodic/daily/ not the place to put your daily
executable scripts? What is daily.local about? I have searched the net
myself and seems that daily.local is something out of an old box. It
should be superseded by /usr/local/etc/periodic/daily/
Do you have a script like /usr/local/etc/periodic/daily/999.local Or is
there another place where the script daily.local will be launched. I
assume that daily.local is a script? Maybe there $HOME is set?

Met vriendelijke groeten,
With kind regards,
Mit freundlichen Gruessen,
De jrus wah,
