That's because, by default, Perforce sets a Host field in your client profile
(you can thank Windows users for that feature).  To get around it, you can
set an env variable to fake that host:

        export P4HOST=h250.starnix.com

Or just delete the setting and you can use the client (aka workspace) from
any host.  Useful in those NFS/AFS/Samba/... environments.

yeah, it's fine.  I'm going to revert the open file in olaf-caf, though, and
delete your two other workspaces.  that ok?

Exactly.  Although, your files aren't up to date with the changes in the main
branch and I believe that some of those were Rick's changes around anonymous
users (may impact your work).  Let me know if you'd like me to up date them
for ya.  Otherwise, give this sequence a shot:

        p4 integ -b caf-main-to-scratch-olaf
        p4 resolve
        p4 submit

(There's lots of docs on this, too.  try 'p4 help integ resolve' or the
online docs at: http://www.perforce.com.)

Also, check out the P4MERGE environment variable (p4 help environment) if you
would like to use your favourite 3-way merge tool.

Let Richard know.  I've helped him bring the changes back, too.  I don't mind
being the regular merge custodian 'full-time', either.
