Nope, I checked for that.

Nope take 2: both locations are own by me with full r+w permissions

I made it work when I am in the original location (a single BAM/BAI combo) and it works so the hypothesis of long paths might be it...  I'll see what I can do to rename my stuff with shorter names.

Thanks for the time
