Sounds like you are talking about patches to files in the debian/ dir,
which I would assume would not be patched by dpatch. Are you really
patching debian/ with dpatch? If so switching to dpkg-source 1.0 plus
quilt should work. For dpkg-source v3.0 quilt, patching debian/ cannot
be done by default.
