I remember reading that there is supposed to be some great new patch
feature in the recent 3.2, so I suspect you are right. I have not looked
at it yet. Maybe you should open a bug report as it could be a regression
from the new changes they have made. I do not believe there is anything
about the Unified diff format that says the paths cannot be absolute. I
took a look at our code a few weeks ago and made some changes to try to
get the paths to be relative. Nothing I did made a difference. I am
working from memory, but I think the Subversion code outputs the paths
relative to the current working directory, and switches to absolute if the
paths are not related. The working directory is the one used to start
Eclipse. Java does not include code that lets you manipulate the working
directory so I did not see a way to fix it.
