Hi Martin,

I don't know if it's the only or even the best way to do it (it seems
to be a bit of a hack), but looking at the command line generated by
p4win when launching a revision graph, you get:

p4v -p perforce:1666 -c this_client -u you -P password -win 655980
-cmd "tree //depot/fullpath/to/file.c"

I guess -p -c -u -P are optional if you have those already set by p4
set or by environment variables, -win 655980 (always using the same
number for me) seems to be a window handle identifier and -cmd "tree
//depot/fullpath/to/file.c" is self explanatory. It seems fussy about
having the full depot path though.
