Hi all,

I have been an avid user and proponent of perforce for the past 7 years.  But I'm currently experiencing some bizarre behavior which I would call a severe bug - although I can't find any info about it with a google search.

The problem is that on mac os p4v, password protected users simply do not work for me.  p4v constantly complains about the password with a never-ending barrage of dialogs.  I know that I'm entering it correctly, I figured that out after about the 100th time.  Command line p4 with PASSWD env variable and windows p4v work fine - no problems, smooth sailing.

Any idea what's going on?
