patch path absolute instead of relative?

Hi,

After submitting a patch to the TortoiseSVN docs, one of
the maintainers mentioned that my patch (created from Subclipse)
contained an absolute instead of relative path to the file
being modified.

Is this expected behaviour? Going through this lists archives
there seems to be a mixture of patch styles, some contain
absolute paths, but others are relative.

A quick test of svn diff revealed that if I was in the working
copy when running svn diff, then a relative path was returned,
but if outside the working copy, an absolute path is used.

So...given that the Subclipse->Team->Create Patch is run from
inside the working copy, perhaps this is an issue?

peace
