Is it possible that you're running a 7.1.0 pre-release condor_submit_dag
binary?  This is the only explanation I can think of.  There are pretty
major changes in how rescue DAGs work in 7.1.0, and the -Autorescue flag
is part of that.

You can find the version of your condor_submit_dag binary by doing the

     strings `which condor_submit_dag` |grep CondorVersion:

yes, it seems indeed that a 7.1.0 pre-release condor_submit_dag version is being used!
Thanks very much, I will pursue the sysadmin now...


(assuming you're on some flavor of Unix or Linux; I'm not sure what the
equivalent is on Windows).

Does the datafind.GRB060429_DATAFIND.dag.condor.sub file work okay for
DAGMan itself, or does it cause problems?  If it causes problems, you may
have a version mismatch between condor_submit_dag and condor_dagman.

(One general note here: the DAGMan version doesn't have to match the
version of the rest of the Condor installation, but the versions of
condor_submit_dag and condor_dagman should always match each other.)
