If you typed this in exactly as quoted, ie:

./simfactory/bin/sim build --mdbkey make'make -j2' ...

then please note that there should be  a space " " between the "make"
and "'make -j2'" strings. Otherwise the shell will combine them.

I would not have expected such a mistake to cause this kind of
behaviour though so that may well not be it.

I am not quite sure what could have caused this other than maybe some
glitch on the file system.

To check this I would try and start from scratch which you can do by
entering the following:

!rm -r ~/Cactus/configs/sim

into a cell and execute it. This completely removes the partially build
Cactus executable and you can start from scratch.
