As part of my work to help get git-p4 close to bug-free before Git
2.0, I'm posting all bugs and patches to this mailing list. Please
direct me elsewhere if this is incorrect.

When trying to clone a particular directory from a depot, that
contains one or more branches that contain no commits for that
directory, branch detection is broken and results in a failed clone.

fatal: ambiguous argument
'refs/remotes/p4/silly_project_branch/trunk': unknown revision or path
not in the working tree.
Use '--' to separate paths from revisions, like this:
'git <command> [<revision>...] -- [<file>...]'
