The bottom line is: Make your external script a drush script, so Drupal will
be bootstrapped and set up correctly. There are loads of advantages to this
- mostly that you don't have to track down every problem you find like
you're doing right now.

Alternately, you can bootstrap Drupal yourself, but drush is the best way to
do it.
