If I make changes to the parfile of my simulation, and call then simfactory submit with the option --parfile=newpar, simfactory does not take this parfile. Instead of this, simfactory uses an old parfile from the old output-xxxx directory in my simualations direrctory.
This usage of the old parfile might be wished. However, if this is the case, simfactory must complain if invoked with the option "parfile=...". But simfactory does not complain.
In my case, the parfile has been modfied, but I am using the same name.
