The semaphores are in: ~/.parallel/semaphores so you can symlink that
to somewhere else.

Or you can do:

  export XDG_CACHE_HOME=/somedir/with/write/access
  mkdir $XDG_CACHE_HOME/parallel

This should create semaphores in $XDG_CACHE_HOME/parallel (but it is
not tested very well).

I would, however, prefer if we can find the root cause and fix it. But
if you only see this sometimes it will make it harder. How is the home
shared? I recall doing a fix for NFS a year ago or so, so if you are
not running newest version, then try upgrading.
