It seems that --workdir= is no longer a valid option in batch jobs and srun in 19.05, and has been replaced by --chdir. I didn't see a change log about this, did I miss it? Going through the man pages it seems it hasn't existed for some time now actually! Maybe not since before 17.11 series. When did this happen?! I guess I'll have to write a jobsubmit rule to overwrite this in the meantime till we get users trained differently.

Anyone else notice this? I can't find this mentioned as a bug, or anything on the nets.
