[p4perl] Trigger Script Issue

Actually, I have never used the user and password for this subroutine. I
have only needed to use them when executing the 'p4' and 'p4d' commands:

    our $p4cmd = "/usr/local/bin/p4 -u $p4user -P $p4ticket";
    our $p4dcmd = "/usr/local/bin/p4d -r $p4root";

Maybe that is the difference. It could be that they are now required.
How would I graph them into this call to FetchJob?

The user is being passed in for reporting purposes only. The trigger
script reads the credentials(username/ticket) from a file:

# Perforce username of superuser used to execute trigger scripts
# Perforce ticket to validate login of above username

I have verified that this is the current ticket:

[root at perforce test]# p4 tickets (build) B740A553FDFAAE9A3C85DFD19485DE5F

Anything else that might be causing this?

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) ?
