Yes.  Fixing this is on my to-do list (hopefully it will happen before
we release version 1.7.3), but I can pretty much guarantee that
whatever I end up doing will not be a perfect solution - there are
simply too many places where absolute paths are used and it is not as
simple as substituting "$PROJECT_DIR" in all of the various parameter
files.  I don't think there is an easy fix for your problem anyway; in
my experience, it is always less trouble to fix the UIDs on the
computer being added to the collective than it is debugging the many
issues (not just in Phenix) that will arise if your users have
multiple identities.
