Whenever I experienced issues with a script running from command line
but failing in trigger context, it turned out to be authentication

For example, I see that you are passing %user% to the trigger script.
Why ? Are you setting that user for subsequent API calls (i.e.
$p4->SetUser()) ? In which case, could this be an authentication issue
(i.e. the user doesn't have a running ticket on the server host where
the trigger is running from) ?
