Subclipse does not technically create patches. We run the Subversion
diff API and it creates the patch. I have never experienced a problem
with new files in patches, so am not sure what your #1 could be. #2
is a limitation of the API and the way it is executed. Subversion 1.5
enhanced the API for us so that we can produce relative path patches.
The Apply Patch wizard provided by Eclipse can handle full paths in
the patch though. That being said, when the paths are relative it is
a lot easier to apply them so we were happy to get this API change
into Subversion.
