But you did not show how you generated those logfiles. Please do that.

I do not see any reason why you should be able to feed any kind of
garbage as a joblog file to GNU Parallel: It should accept joblogs
generated by itself and nothing more. If you can make GNU Parallel
generate a joblog file that it cannot read or which it reads wrongly,
then I will consider it a bug.
