No solution, but:

1. You should check for differences in the environment. But a 'env >
/tmp/ss.env' in the script directly in front of the fbxine-call. The
check for differences with the environment in you console shell (invoke
a similar command and diff the files!).

2. Maybe fbxine writes to stdout/stderr. Try redirecting fbxine's output
to /dev/null (append ' >/dev/null 2>&1').
