You should have your client include the name of the buildslave to ensure 
that each buildslave has a unique client name.
Otherwise all buildslaves update the same client name, perforce won't 
update files updated on other clients..
Unless for some reason your client is on a shared filesystem, but still 
you can get in to messy issues..

This is likely the cause of your problem.
