Thanks Aaron, that is exactly it - on this box /home is a symlink for 
/usr/home, whereas the other one has its own /home filesystem. Removing 
the path check in the jelly means I get a successful build.

Can I suggest a slight amendment to the error message along the lines of 
"...absolute path check failed - case problem or symlink in repository
