I've committed two changes to the svn library which fixes these issues.
One change was actually a bug that prevented the svn patch function to
recognize the '\dev\null' line.
The other change I committed was to support your patch files that have
an additional context line 'index xxx..xxx xxx' after the file mode
content line. Such patch files were not supported before.

I'll propose these two changes for backporting to the 1.7.x branch - no
guarantee though that it will make it there (needs three votes from
other svn developers to get there).
