Odd. This worked cleanly when I tried it on RedHat 7.1. What version
of patch is this?
The offending lines are flagged with a \ in col.1, which is
undocumented in the info file for diff, but obviously discernible from
ordinary unidiff lines (which have either space, + , or - ). So I
suspect that a recent "patch" just treats that as a comment.
Looks like the problem could be difficult to avoid (except by ensuring
that we don't have any files without terminal newlines) since I see no
diff option controlling the behaviour.
