More than one parent item was found when starting align job
When starting an align job for a library that has been merged from 2 flow cells an error message is displayed:
Error: More than one parent item was found for 1105099.1.l.r.m.c.lib.g This wizard can't be used until that is corrected.
Since a merged item can have any number of parent flow cells this error message is is incorrect.
The background is that we need to get the read string used when demuxing in order to calculate the '--mate-inner-dist' parameter for Tophat.
The question is how we should handle this when there are two or more parent items. Normally, the read string should be the same so this should not be any problem. If not, we could select the minimal value yielding the biggest value for '--mate-inner-dist'.
