I'm afraid I don't create the patches, I just apply them, ie projects devs send
stuff into SF and our Trac site on a regular basis and after a while the pattern
emerged that patches created with tortoiseSVN never work.

So it's an empirical observation, sorry I can't offer more detail than that. I
can almost guarantee however that the patches were created with patch.exe which
must be what's invoked when you use the Tortoise GUI. "svn diff > patchfile"
patches created on linux has never caused a problem.
