I've often been hosed by stray files laying around in my src trees.
cvs update will identify them, but p4 doesn't.  Justin Gibbs pointed
me to a windoze version of a script that finds stray files, and I tweaked
it to run under unix.  Here it is, in case anybody is interested.  Just
cd to the top of the tree you're interested in and run it.

#! /usr/local/bin/perl
# ------------------------------------------------------------------------
# p4_unmanaged
# ------------------------------------------------------------------------
# List all the files in the current directory and subdirectories that
# are not checked into perforce, and therefore 'unmanaged'
# ------------------------------------------------------------------------

# Generate arrays of files perforce knows about 'havelist'
# and that exist in the filesystem 'locallist'
@havelist  = `p4 have ...`;
$cwd = `/bin/pwd`;
chomp $cwd;
@locallist = `find $cwd -type f -print`;

# Iterate over the havelist and add to a hash
%havehash = ();
for( @havelist )
    # $1=p4name $2=version $3=filename
    /(.*)#(\d+) - (.*)/;
    $havehash{$3} = $3;

# Loop through the locallist
for( @locallist )
    # $1=filename
    if( /(.*)\n/ )
        # if file is not in havelist then print its name
        if( !exists($havehash{$1}) )
            print "$1" . "\n";
