P4CONFIG files not working in IDEA sometimes

I prefer to use P4CONFIG files in the roots of my folders projects in IDEA, Sometimes the P4CONFIG works (successful connection) and sometimes it doesn't. Looks like I'll have to specify them for each project manual then.

Anyone else had these issues?

Idea 10.0.2
Same problem here. I never correctly checks out files from .idea folder.
I ended up disabling use of P4CONFIG.
JetBrains, please fix it in 10.0.3

Do you have several Perforce servers in the project?
I beleive it should work if P4CONFIG file is in the project root directory _and_ all modules are under project root directory
Otherwise (when modules are outside), each separate module which is not under common root should have its own P4CONFIG file - directly in module root directory

Actually just tried again and it worked, I did remove some other test modules. If
probs arise again I'll let you know.
