Dunno about how they did theirs, but I've just finished reading all
the CVS log messages on ours. From what I can tell, we added some
casts and code to use mkstemp. No changes in behavior! I can't explain
what is going on.

My one possible guess is that patch is in fact what is failing in the
test and not actually diff. I'm going to check that. If so, I'll
figure out what's wrong with our patch and fix it. Otherwise I'll
continue to be puzzled.
