Thank you for your help.

I tried your tip without success.
Then i changed it back to standard and changed the shabang to

after that i got:
dpkg --configure --pending
Setting up evince (0.5.2-0ubuntu3.2) ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/evince.postinst: line 11:  5671 Segmentation fault
   scrollkeeper-update -q >/dev/null 2>&1

i comented line 11 and it´s relevants out and then it worked.
scrollkeeper can run with the next cron.

again thanks and bye ;)
