[p4] Partial branch integration causes problems

When you tell Perforce to force an integration, you're not only telling it
to do it despite having done it before. You're also telling it to ignore
any previous integration history and go all the way back to the beginning
in evaluating the diffs.

Subject: [p4] Partial branch integration causes problems


I have a problem with branching that I hope some of you might know a
solution on.

1. I branch some files from branch A to B.
2. Once work is done in B and I do a filespec integration from B to A,
but only some of the files are branched back into A to make testing A
more simple.
3. Once testing is done on the partial changes I want to integrate the
rest of the changes in B back into A ... but now perforce tells me
that the integration is "done" and there is nothing to integrate. I
then force integration of file already integrated (check under
options), but now the perforce merge application tells me that the
files are totally different, even though only minor changes exist.

Is this a perforce problem? A merge application problem? ... or me ;o)  ??

Hope you can help !
