I debugged this same 400 error with 'getcwd' in my 2.7.18 version of
puppet. I did not find useful information through web searches, so posted
my debugging steps here: http://jaroker.com/?p=2036

In my case, the puppet master had been operating normally for over a year.
I had recently updated my Eclipse IDE and created new manifests. The IDE
used non UTF-8 encoding on these new files. Subsequent puppet runs on
various nodes produced this 400-getcwd error: "puppet: Could not retrieve
catalog from remote server Error 400 on SERVER “Could not parse for
environment...” getcwd"

In my case, the solution was to identify DOS-encoded files on the master
and convert them to unix.

the line in question is getting a custom module which has not changed

I was installing

permissions. However I am at a loss as to what as everything looks to be

Puppet Master and two client nodes on Debian Wheezy, the clients both
return this error. Puppet version 3.2.1 on all 3.

Any suggestions as to where to start debugging this?
