I entirely removed the "log" specifier from the the submit files and the macro warnings are gone. The DAG still aborts eventually and dagman.out is still littered with BAD_EVENT messages. There is nothing to distinguish the last BAD_EVENT message from the many others before the DAG just seems to spontaneously abort. It seems to get farther along, but I cannot be statistically sure of that.

I will try again with DAGMAN_ALLOW_EVENTS set to '1'. If I still get the abort error, then what are the real consequences of setting DAGMAN_ALLOW_EVENTS to '5'? I really need this to work. I'm extremely nervous about this failure and have a lot staked on DAG working reliably. I'm happy to help debug.
