Correct, I just thought you knew that. You have to use the options that
Apply Patch gives you to strip off leading folders from the path.

I believe the Eclipse CVS Create Patch always produces relative paths.
That is also how svn diff does it, but only if the diff is made relative
to the working copy. That is the problem. We have to make the diff using
a full path to the WC, and svn diff then uses full paths in its output.
