Posted on behalf of forum user 'David Yerkess'.

All files contain the text 'Change 1'.

I tried again in the same Depot, but to a new path so that there were no
previous revisions. 96.375 files were submitted in the changelist without
problems.
The C# program then continues by editing a subset of files chosen randomly. This
changelist of 48.197 edited files (added text ' Change 2')  failed with
the same problem.
I tried to submit the pending changelist from P4V, but each time it fails on a
different file.Here is the log from within P4V:

p4 submit -f submitunchanged -i
2 errors reported
Operation 'dm-SubmitFile' failed.
Librarian checkin f:/perforce/ some_rather_long_path /caboutbox.designer.cs
failed.
RCS checkin C:\Windows\TEMP\t3608t532527.tmp#1.293 failed!
RCS delta mangled: empty!
Submit aborted -- fix problems then use 'p4 submit -c 293'.
Some file(s) could not be transferred from client.

RCS delta mangled: empty!
Submit aborted -- fix problems then use 'p4 submit -c 293'.

Note: the paths are edited, because I cannot show them publicly.

Here is the content on one of the failed files in the depot:


head 1.293; access ; symbols ; locks ;comment @@; 1.293 date
2013.07.25.18.56.19; author p4; state Exp; branches ; next 1.292; 1.292 date

Changelist 293 is the changelist that is still pending.
Is it normal that the changes are added before submit is successful?
