This shows your script is not running a 'p4 sync': at least not against this 
server in that timeframe. Those records show you running 'p4 client -o' and 
'p4 client -i' commands.

Because Perforce commands can partially succeed and partially fail. A single 
error return doesn't make much sense. You'll find an array of all the errors 
that occurred by calling P4::Errors().

It's hard to be more specific without seeing more of the script. Could you 
give us a little more to go on?
