Thank you for the detailed report.  It is a bug in 1.7.12-rc2.
This series fixes it, on top of origin/master.

The crux of the matter is that files are mapped into the wrong
locations in git when both --use-client-spec and --branch-detection
are enabled.

Pete Wyckoff (5):
  git p4 test: move client_view() function to library
  git p4 test: add broken --use-client-spec --detect-branches tests
  git p4: set self.branchPrefixes in initialization
  git p4: do wildcard decoding in stripRepoPath
  git p4: make branch detection work with --use-client-spec                     | 75 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++--------------
