That still yields the "no files opened" message, but from what the buckmeister says, that's just an extant message and the right thing happens.  I guess this is what was tripping up my user.

You can just create a new changelist and drag the file to it. Not very 
obvious, eh? :)

He's using P4V and cannot see the option to do so.  In a test case I ran, I don't see it either.  I don't remember this being a problem back with P4Win, so I was thinking it might just be a terminology thing, but I can't see what else it might be from the options in the right click context drop on the file.
