Default Cuffmerge command giving error- TypeError: 'str' object is not callable

Hi all
I am merging the 1 test sample transcripts.gtf and 1 control sample transcripts.gtf files through cuffmerge via this command :

cufflinks-2.0.0.Linux_x86_64/cuffmerge -s ref-genomes/hg19.fa assemblies.txt

where hg19.fa is reference genome which I used to align the raw reads. I am not giving reference GTF file for the moment.
assemblies.txt contains 2 lines:

The error i am getting is as :
[Fri May 11 10:09:51 2012] Beginning transcriptome assembly merge

[Fri May 11 10:09:51 2012] Preparing output location ./merged_asm/
Warning: no reference GTF provided!

File "cufflinks-2.0.0.Linux_x86_64/cuffmerge", line 252, in gtf_to_sam

Hi Kumardeep,

Could it be that you left out gtf_to_sam from you PATH?

the code looks light it might be something to do with this.
