We have a directory path in our depot that includes a period.  We have
written a Java application to automate our build process.  Essentially it
takes a script, parses it and the executes the command line necessary to
accomplish the task indicated by the keyword.

We are having problems with the Perforce 'sync' command.  When synchronizing
to this directory the whole path is honoured, however, when using 'sync' as
follows it removes everything below ACDSee and does not confine the file
removal to the DI subtree.

     "p4 sync //Release/ACDSee/4.0/DI/... #none" 

We have tried wrapping the entire path in quotes and only the reference to
4.0 in quotes to no avail.  Is this a bug or am I missing some key point?
