Perhaps it is a Mac problem? I have applied patches in the past on my Mac
though. I think I was always using 3.0.2 though when doing so.

The point I made in another post is that Apply Patch is 100% Eclipse code.
 We do not run at any point in the process. If there are problems it
needs to be reported to them. Full paths being specificied in a patch is
not a problem. If you think it is, then you need to report that to the
Subversion developers and convince them to never produce a patch with svn
diff that contains full paths.
