thanks for that link. I think I finally understand what is going on.
From the linked bug:

"Also, there is no way to record the ancestry with traditional patch,
thus there's no way to actually generate a 'correct' patch in this
case." and "The result from a patch which includes the add is *not*
the correct result, since the fact that the add stems from a rename is
lost (i.e. the fact that the original add was *with history*)."

So it seems there is currently no way to do this correctly, so it
isn't done at all. That certainly seems like a bug or at least a
serious limitation to me.

Moving on, how does one work around this? I know the subersion project
itself depends a lot on submitted patches. Surely these run into the
same problems on occasion?
