I see patch setting permissions according to umask. Why are you seeing
something different? Which version of Subversion are you using?

svnadmin create repo
svn import -mm repo/format file://`pwd`/repo/f
svn co file://`pwd`/repo wc
echo xx >> wc/f
(cd wc && svn diff) > p
svn revert -R wc


$ ls -l wc/f
-rw-r--r-- 1 pm pm 2 Nov 22 10:03 wc/f
$ (umask 070 && svn patch p wc)
U wc/f
$ ls -l wc/f
-rw----rw- 1 pm pm 5 Nov 22 10:00 wc/f

I get that behaviour with 1.7, 1.8 and trunk.
