comment crontab's @reboot only works for root?
@slm, Yes it is executable. I think I found the culprit (just as Anthon originally suggested, see my comment to him below). I am going to try now your /etc/rc.local. su - <user> -c suggestion.

I updated my OP to answer your questions. Turns out your suspicion was right from the start: The script to-be-run on reboot resides on a mountable /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol01 partition.

@slm My vixie-cron version (see OP update above) is exactly the one referred to in your link as the one that resolves the @reboot problem... I am confused.

@NielsB. How did it work for you? I just tried this and confirmed that @reboot only works for root: unix.stackexchange.com/a/109805/28712 Thanks.

@XTian Thanks. What is the recommended way to run a script on reboot as a user other than root?
