switch from atm f19 grid to f09 grid generates namelist failure


we've been working with porting a development version of the CESM (cesm1_5_beta02_waccm06) to the NOAA RDHPC Theia system.  With help from respondents on this bulletin board, we have been able to configure and run the FW5 compset with the f19_g16 grid.  

we find that we need to run at a finer resolution to resolve certain atmospheric features of interest, and are attempting to run the FW5 compset with the f09_g16 or the f09_f09 grid.  For either of the f09 grids, we can successfully create and setup the case, after having added pes layout to the file components/cam/cime_config/config_pes.xml, as was done for the f19 case.

However, when we run the ./preview_namelist utility with either of these grids, the process fails part way into the creation of the atm namelist. The error is shown here:

 when I compare the contents of the directory casedir/Buildconf/ for the f19 case to that of the f09 grid case, I see that the file "cam.input_data_list" is not in the latter, and the contents of the casedir/Buildconf/camconf directory for the f09 grid case do not include the files "atm_in", "docn_in", or "drv_flds_in". have I missed somewhere else where I need to specify the f09 (0.9x1.25) grid other than the cam "config_pes.xml" file? thanks for any insights,
