[GE dev] Problem with Drmaa implementation

The problem has nothing to do with DRMAA.  It's happening when the job 
is started by the execution daemon.  This might help:


It's rather old now, but I'm pretty sure it's still accurate.

That error message is coming from line 743 of 
daemons/shepherd/builtin_starter.c.  It's saying that the input path you 
set was "root|null", and not surprisingly, it can't open that file.  If 
you don't want to set an input path, leave the inputPath on the 
JobTemplate as "".  If you're trying to set it to something, the format 
should be "[host]:path", where [host] optional and represents the remote 
machine to use with file staging.  In the vast majority of cases, you're 
going to just use ":path".
