Thank you, Iayd. Indeed, setting ulimit -s to unlimited helped to advance
this further.
I can see now that a job gets generated and submitted. However Galaxy
crashes immediately after that.
Job <108038> is submitted to queue <short>.
*** glibc detected *** python: free(): invalid pointer: 0x00007fff79f10b64
======= Backtrace: =========
< further output is omitted >

Tracking the job through the scheduler reveals that the job finished

The command in the job script is something like this:

python /galaxy-dist/tools/data_source/ /galaxy-dist
/galaxy-dist/database/tmp/tmpGY5_lI /galaxy-dist/database/tmp/tmpr7VKGy


usage: <root> <datatypes_conf> <json paramfile> <output spec> ...

I cannot re-run it because only the first file in the tmp folder is there.
The second (json paramfile, tmpr7VKGy) is gone. I presume dataset_1.dat is
the output and it's there.

The second half of the job script is the execution of
I can execute it without issues (is this a db update?).

One significant difference between the setup which works and which doesnt
is that the working setup sits on local disk whereas the not working on
Lustre. Could that be relevant?

By the way, is there a method for removing the pending job?
When I re-run Galaxy, it promptly crashes again due the stuck job.

When Galaxy starts, the only error that I see is this
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:
While it might be a good question why mutation directory is not there, the
error is very likely not relevant to the issue.

So I'm open to further suggestions as to how to understand what's going on.

Thank you
