P4DTI issue job000204

TitleIssue owned by non-existent Perforce user causes crash
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionIf the Perforce server is running without any spare licences, then when the replicator tries to overwrite a job whose owner is a user that doesn't exist in Perforce, then you get the error message "Can't create a new user - over licence quota".
AnalysisThis is because the Perforce command "p4 user -o foo" (when foo is not a user) doesn't work unless there's a spare licence. This is even though it doesn't create a new user (possibly a bug in Perforce).
The method user_email_address() should catch this error and do the sensible thing.
