If the key part is that there is more than 1 pair of "..." wildcards,
wouldn't this grep be able to find if any client or branch had more than
2 groups of 3 periods, if you looped over all the clients?

p4 client -o $(CLIENT) |egrep "(\.\.\..*){3}"

But I don't know what other bad combinations there are for the
client/branch specs.
