 longslit/fitcoords error

I'm having troubles with the longslit/fitcoords task. Below you can find the parameters I use for the task.
The input spectrum is called fb0057.image.fits, the reidentify task stores the data in database/idfb0057.image. The output is the following:

Longslit coordinate fit name is idfb0057.imagefb0057.image.fits.
Longslit database is database.
Features from images:
Warning: Cannot open file (database/idfb0057.image.fits)

I tried to rename the file database/idfb0057.image to database/idfb0057.image.fits, but then I get the error "Warning: No coordinates found in database". I'm using a 64bit linux machine, and I tried to use the task both in 2.16 IRAF installed with Ureka and 2.16.1 IRAF installed from source. The task seem to be working well on a 32bit linux machine with also 2.16.1 IRAF.

thanks for the help!

I know it is long since you asked, but for documentation reasons I will reply.

I ran into this problem myself recently so the solution is to give as input the image without the extension
(strip the name of the ".fits" part) then it must run smoothly

All the best!
