We had this problem.
For us it was a mismatch between the p4 environment variables, p4tickets
file, and how our users logged into the p4v GUI.
This is what we suggested to our users.
Delete .p4tickets file
Check P4PORT, P4CLIENT, and P4USER environment variables.
Make sure your P4PORT and the port setting you use in the connection
dialog match exactly.
Log back into the P4V client and see if you have the same issue.

I am using the latest linux p4v client: Rev. Perforce Visual
and for for some reason, my client continuously prompts me for my
Each time I view a directory in the repo, I get the password dialog box.
When I decide to check something out, it also prompts me. It doesn't do
this for my windows client though. Has anyone experienced this issue?
It's quite annoying :) When I login, the client tells me that my ticket
will expire in 2 hours.
