[p4] Has anyone else had problems resolving with P4V?

A few users here have gotten into states where P4V says it cannot
resolve a file (sometimes just one of several in a change) even
though the integration was reasonably straightforward. Switching
to either P4 or P4Win allows them to complete the resolve without
a problem.

It's not happening very often, maybe once in a thousand tries at
integration. (Hard to say for sure, but I only hear about it maybe
once every six weeks or so.)

I have noticed in the past the P4V occasionally gets stuck in a
"you can't get there from here" state that can be cleared by
restarting it, but this issue usually persists after a restart so it
appears to be some subtle feature of the integration that P4V
thinks is an illegal operation (but the other clients ignore). It
doesn't provide any useful information about why, just that
can't resolve message.
