Create Patch uses svn diff and for whatever reason based on the way we use
it, it produces them as absolute paths in the diff. Apply Patch comes
from Eclipse and it handles full paths as part of its wizard. It is
possible that other apply patch programs do not.

I spend a lot of time working with patches and I have never had a problem
like the one you describe. I usually am using 3.0.x or 3.1.x of Eclipse.
