Yup that looks like a Takes problem, a parm can't be set because it's not
part of the take.

What should happen is as soon as the Houdini file is opened, "autotakes"
should be turned on, so that any needed parm mods can happen. Since the
.hip files that the farm opens are not written out, this is safe and makes
things Just Work. You should probably submit a bug to SESI for this.
