There is a line before that message iun my error:
/usr/gap4r4/pkg/atlasrep/datagens/HSG1-p100B0.m1: Permission denied
+ Record Element: <rec> must be a record (not a boolean)

Running the test once as a user with write permission on the
/usr/gap4r4/pkg/atlasrep/datagens/ directory
the problem goes away for all users.

Is this your problem too ?
