[p4] no 'p4 branches' after conversion using cvs2p4?

The branches don't reflect actual branching occurred; they are specs of
relationships between two locations, such as codelines.

Subject: [p4] no 'p4 branches' after conversion using cvs2p4?

Hi p4/cvs2p4 users,

I tried converting a cvs repository with a lot of branches and labels to
p4 using cvs2p4.  The conversion went through fine and the change history
looks good.  I am also able to view the labels in the created repository
using 'p4 labels' but 'p4 branches' doesn't show up any branches.  This is
inspite of the p4 filelog showing the appropriate "... branch from/into
//depot" log messages.

Do I have to manually create the branches using 'p4 branch' and set the
branch view in the branch specification?  Or am I missing something?

Also, where can I find the post-cvs2p4-conversion label conversion tool that
has been refered to in this email thread:
