I have a similar problem with renaming fastq to fastqsanger. In my case after 
some time galaxy displays

"An error occurred setting the metadata for this dataset. You may be able to set it manually or retry auto-detection."

The paster.log shows this:

galaxy.jobs DEBUG 2012-10-17 14:16:44,623 (123) Changing ownership of working directory with: /usr/bin/sudo -E scripts/external_chown_script.py /data/galaxy/galaxy-dist/database/job_working_directory/000/123 galaxy 3400 galaxy.jobs DEBUG 2012-10-17 14:16:44,989 Tool did not define exit code or stdio handling; checking stderr for success - - [17/Oct/2012:14:16:45 +0200] "POST /galaxy/root/history_item_updates HTTP/1.1" 200 - "http://bbc.mdc-berlin.de/galaxy/history?dataset_id=f30a35c999095ed7&filename=None"; "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0" galaxy.datatypes.metadata DEBUG 2012-10-17 14:16:45,234 setting metadata externally failed for HistoryDatasetAssociation 110: External set_meta() not called
galaxy.jobs DEBUG 2012-10-17 14:16:45,375 job 123 ended

May that be related to an incorrect setup of drmaa job-runner?

When attempting the change the filetype of a fastq file to fastqsanger, the
