Dear all,

some SGE instances will add automatically an semicolon add the end of
each command, resulting in a disrupted job, because ';;' are not

The latest changes to the Bowtie2 wrapper resulting in such a case and a
crash in our instance. An easy solution would be to fix the wrapper and
omitting the trailing ';' but maybe its better to fix it once for all in
the corresponding tools code, patched attached.

I'm not familiar with other Job schedulers so I'm seeking for
comments ... it there any disadvantage of removing trailing ';' from the
command line?
