[p4] When a Mac gets a hostname renamed, the user thinks the workspace is "gone" and Perforce is broken.

I work with Mac people. They are OK, really! But some how every once and awhile a Mac OS X 10.4/5 gets a different host name. When that happens, I have to clear out the host field in the P4 client. Once that is done, everything is OK. I don't think it is P4V.app that is causing it, it seems like a DHCP issue. Yet, it never happens on Windows machines. The users think it is Perforce's fault. I don't but my position doesn't matter when it stops them from working.
I guess I will have to write a script to reset the host on Mac clients.
Any one have any ideas?
