Perforce p4 - IJ not taking credentials from preference settings?

I'm setting up IDEA 7.0.3 under Mac OS X 10.5.4 in a shop with both Mac and Windows versions already in place. I've configured Perforce with the same credentials that p4v uses. Test connection succeeds. Whenever I right-click on any file and Perforce > Edit the following error appears:

Error: Access for use 'mickey' has not been enabled by 'p4 protect'.

With p4v I can Check Out the same file.

mickey is my Mac OS X login username, the Perforce client workspace credentials are different, like MICK_DEV.

What am I not understanding here? Help gratefully accepted.
