[Halld-offline] [EXTERNAL] auxilliary data file needed for running with HADR=4

Hi all,

As a follow up to this and to keep a record for others, I can not get the
HADR 4 option to work when submitting jobs to the ifarm via MCWrapper
batch=2. I get a reasonable output when I run the job interactively, as
seen above. I'm using the same environment, but I'm guessing somehow the
correct file is not being found in batch mode. I do not see anything that
stands out in the log files. Thomas, any suggestions or ideas on why
MCWrapper does not recognize this file? My CERNLIB is located at
