Long directory paths cause jobs to fail


Is there a config option to force cromwell to use shorter directory names? The extreme verbosity of the hashes used cause several job runners to fail :neutral:
In my case, using a torque/PBS back end, the runner complains about the directory arg being too long (256 characters +), causing the submitted job to fail.
There have already been reports of this being the case with other runners also (https://github.com/broadinstitute/cromwell/issues/4703)

Thanks for the info

    FYI, personally I'm talking about a local run, so everything is contained within a single parent dir, with a limited number of jobs, so concerns about the uniqueness of the directory should be less than when using cromwell in server mode.
