You didn't say which log you see the error in, but I believe the error is
coming from condor_submit (when the globus jobmanager tries to submit your
job to the remote pool). When you use the "condorsubmit" attribute with
"GlobusRSL" in your local submit file, you're telling globus to blindly
add lines to the submit file it uses to submit the job to the remote
condor pool. Neither condor-g nor globus tries to interpret the values you
specify, so the remote condor_submit is being told about input files that
are valid on your local machine.

For this to work, you need use only the filenames (no path information) in
the GlobusRSL, and list the files in your condor-g submit file using
transfer_input_files. Then condor-g will ask globus to stage the files and
the remote condor_submit should find them (relative to the remote initial
working directory).
