I was too late. From the 2007.2 beta release notes:

    #117342 * **
	Different values of P4PORT for the same server instance
	e.g. (ip:port# vs host:port#) would result in multiple
	ticket entries in the Perforce ticket file. This has 
	been fixed so that the same server instance will always
	produce a single ticket entry that either P4PORT value can
	use.  (Bug #16707, #18349).
