[p4] Perforce triggers

Much to the annoyance of some of the developers at our organisation I've
added certain code format checks into a Perforce change-content trigger.
This seems to work very well.

However, one of the side affects is that should the submission fail it
will leave the file locked and read only on the client.     So the file
then has to be at the very least chmod'd and possibly unlocked too.
Even the people who support the spirit of what I'm trying to do aren't
too keen on this second aspect.

Is there something I'm doing wrong or is it a bug?   (I couldn't find
anything relevant in the Tech Notes ...)
