Many thanks for the help! 

Indeed, adding "should_transfer_files=yes" did the trick! For some reason, I had removed this from a config file that I pass around from project to project.

For some reason, on one of them, rather than the jobs running in, for example, /var/lib/condor/execute/dir_<PID>/.…. where <PID> is a unique number tied to the process ID, in some cases, they end up running in roughly the same location they were submitted from (like /home/username/launch_dir)
