    Regarding the first Usage examples on top on of this page:

    What does -L 20 mean?

    If used, it gives the following Error:

    "A USER ERROR has occurred: Badly formed genome unclippedLoc: Query interval "20" is not valid for this input."

    GenomicsDBImport seem to freeze when used with reference genome with numerous or larger scaffolds/pseudo chromosomes.

    I got an user error related to the number of intervals which was above 100.

    I have reduced the chromosomes number of the reference fasta file to 15, with a scaffold size between 15Mb and 30Mb, for a total length of 310 Mb.

    But even though the error message don't show up anymore, the script seems to be frozen.
