I guess this one incorrect file could be causing the error above, but it should be noted that the 1 file that was done incorrectly in the patch file was NOT one of the files that was in a new directory. The badly done file was an already existing file.

I've opened issue #174 for this:

patching in TSVN 1.7 is done with the svn library patch function. That
function does not support renames (yet).
You can ask on their mailing list if/when that gets implemented (users
at subversion.apache.org)

That works fine with my latest build from trunk.
Maybe this is already fixed on the svn 1.7.x branch?
