git patch friendly question

Hi, I'm code::blocks developer, I use both tortoiseSVN(latest 1.7.8) and tortoiseGit for the development. The official Code::blocks use the SVN, but I sometimes use Git. When I would like to commit to the official SVN repo, what I would do is:
1, create a patch in my git repo using the TortoiseGit.
2, apply the patch in the local svn repo.
3, commit the svn change to the remote servo.

But I have problems doing the second step. When I have a patch file create from git, I can't not directly apply the file by TortoiseSVN->Context Menu->Apply patch..., the TortoiseSVN always report a failure or did nothing, besides that, TortoiseSVN will create some empty dummy folder named "b" and "b/xxx".

What works for step two is one of the below way:
1, I can use the svn command line, like: svn patch test.patch --strip 1
2, I can use the "patch utility", like: patch -p1 <test.patch

Both of the above methods, I can directly apply the patch generated from the git without modifying the patch file.

So, my question is: can TortoiseSVN be more git patch friendly? Thanks.
