I knew that already. But was hoping that there would be some way of
working around it.

I knew how I used to work around it when I used Emacs. I would start a
Emacs server out of any view. Then I would start the emacs client using 

emacsclient ${CLEARCASE_ROOT}/${PWD}/<filename>

This would always open up the file from the right view, since the
complete path was specificed. And I was hoping that the same would work
in vim as well. Looks like it won't.

I think I will stick to the solution of starting multiple gvim windows.
However I would have really loved to share the registers/clipboard etc.
Thanks for the help Anyway.
