P4DTI issue job000376

TitleIn TeamTrack integration, P4Win crashes if you try to create a job
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionIf you try to create a job in P4Win when you're using the P4DTI jobspec, then P4Win crashes with the error message "integer division by zero".
AnalysisThis is Perforce job 6179 [1] and 6295 [4]. It seems to be caused by us using "line" as the type for the Title field rather than "text" which is in the default Perforce jobspec and which doesn't provoke this error. It seems clear that this is a bug in P4Win but Perforce point out that we shouldn't be changing fields 101 to 105.
We should work around this by using "text" as the field type and being careful about how the field is translated.
