Variant Recalibrator 0 scoring variants

Hi,

We've been experiencing an error with the Variant Recalibrator tool in a number of our runs. The error occurred with versions 3.5 and 3.7, with WGS data that shouldn't break the tool due to an insufficient number of variants. The stack trace that we get looks like this:

INFO  15:08:58,235 VariantRecalibratorEngine - Evaluating full set of 4571033 variants... ``
INFO  15:08:58,325 VariantDataManager - Training with worst 0 scoring variants --> variants with LOD <= -5.0000.
