[p4] Tracking "ignored" integrates

I work in an environment where large numbers of binary files are
frequently integrated between different branches by different people,
and I've come across a stumbling block in tracing what happened and


Recently I was looking at a file in the revision graph in P4V and found
that the file was ignored in a specific integrate, however, in both
P4Win & P4V if I looked at the file history or the changelist
description I can find no mention of this and can't see any easy way to
determine if a file was in fact changed without resorting to diffing a
binary file?


Both clients report that the file was either branched or integrated,
which is a little disconcerting, is this what I should expect to see?


Have I missed something in the GUI clients, or is there a p4 command
that I can run that will give me better information than what I'm
getting from the GUIs?


Many thanks,
