This code:

        if type_base == "symlink":
            git_mode = "120000"
            # p4 print on a symlink sometimes contains "target\n";
            # if it does, remove the newline
            data = ''.join(contents)
  ==>       if data[-1] == '\n':
                contents = [data[:-1]]
                contents = [data]

means that data is an empty string.  Implies you've got a
symlink pointing to nothing.  Is that even possible?

It could be this is a regression introduced at 1292df1 (git-p4:
Fix occasional truncation of symlink contents., 2013-08-08).  The
old way of doing data[:-1] unconditionally would have worked but
was broken for other reasons.

Could you investigate the symlink a bit?  We're looking for
one in change 59702 that points to nowhere.  Maybe do:

    $ p4 describe -s 59702

and see if you can figure out which of those could be a symlink, then
inspect it:

    $ p4 fstat //depot/symlink@59702
    (probably shows it is "headRev 1")

    $ p4 print -q //depot/symlink#1

    $ p4 print -q //depot/symlink#1 | od -c

Thanks for checking this depot info first.
