Oddball error from "batch"

Note -- working fine on 11.1 and 11.2, upgraded machine to 12.0-STABLE
and everything is ok that I'm aware of *except*.....

# batch

Job 170 will be executed using /bin/sh

Then the time comes and... no output is emailed to me.

In the cron log file I find:

Feb 10 16:00:00 NewFS atrun[65142]: cannot open input file
E000aa018a24c3: No such file or directory

Note that scheduled cron jobs are running as expected, and the
permissions on /var/at are correct (match exactly my 11. 1 and 11.2
boxes), and in addition of looking BEFORE the job runs the named job
number IS THERE.

[\u at NewFS /var/at/jobs]# ls -al
total 13
drwxr-xr-x  2 daemon  wheel    5 Feb 10 15:55 .
drwxr-xr-x  4 root    wheel    5 Oct  8  2013 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root    wheel    6 Feb 10 15:55 .SEQ
-rw-------  1 root    wheel    0 Jul  5  2008 .lockfile
-rwx------  1 root    wheel  615 Feb 10 15:55 E000aa018a24c3

After the error.... the file isn't there.  It was removed (as one would
expect when the job is complete.)

What the blankety-blank?!
