Perforce Plugin on OSX "Client unknown"

The perforce plugin on OSX appears to be quite confused.

Using P4CONFIG, values are read correctly when using Test Connection button, but error reported is "Client unknown"

When I press the Test Connection button, it seems to attempt to launch P4V unsuccessfully - the app is launched to my tray, but no main window is ever created.

Path to P4 executable: /Applications/p4vc
Path to P4V executable: /Applications/p4v.app/Contents/MacOS/p4v

Output from p4vc -V:

Figured out.  For some reason, the plugin does not work with the command line client that is bundled with p4v, "p4vc", but only the standalone p4 client.

Output form p4 -V is:
