Queue deletes all files in working directory

dmyersturnbulldmyersturnbull Stanford UniversityMember

I'm running Queue-3.3-0 on an Ubuntu server, and running it deletes every file in the working directory. I've only tried this on one machine so far, but I reproduced this behavior repeatedly in different situations and confirmed that the directory emptied is the precisely the current directory, at least in my setup.

This behavior seems dangerous to me. I can submit a detailed bug report.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I don't think Queue is doing this. I didn't pin down the culprit exactly, but I think it's bwakit or software it calls.
