Hmm, that all looks OK to me.  Is the cron job running
/usr/local/lib/repl/netreg-repl.sh as a fully-qualified pathname
or relying on the PATH?  If the latter, try making it fully-qualified.

Another thing you could try is to disable authentication for the
repl user altogether.  A sudoers line like the following would
do that.

Defaults:reply !authenticate
