If by some lucky chance you "exported" your homeworksets then the original paths to the files will be in a file called setN.def or setN.bak where N is the name of your set. (these are in the templates directory which you can reach through the File Manager link.)

Otherwise the path name was in a field in the mysql database. On the one hand you don't expect anything to go wrong with a simple reference to the database, but faced with the fact that something did go wrong it's hard to narrow down the possible causes -- it could be from the WeBWorK perl code, it could be some glitch in the mysql database -- I think until you can get this error to repeat it will be hard to track down.
