I submitted a job for a simulation which already existed. This lead to the following output, where there is an error message about "mkdir". Even though there is an error, simfactory proceeds (it probably shouldn't). In this case, however, I assume that the error is benign because the directory existed before, and thus the error message should not be shown at all.
