Git diffs add "a/" and "b/" prefixes to all paths in the patch file.
So try again with 'svn patch --strip 1'.

If that doesn't help could you show us the output of the failing
'svn patch' command, and the header lines of the patch files?
You don't need to show file content changes, just the headers which
look similar to this:
Index: beta
