[Sidefx-houdini-list] Problem with Alfred Output Driver path

Are you calling the alf rop that comes with H9.5 - or a custom one
branched off a v8 alfred rop?

The current factory one looks like it goes through soho and Alfred.py
- and doesn't touch scripts/alfred/alf_rman.cmd.

What is the path the hda is coming from?
