Looks like the patch didn't fit in here. Bit strange though. Could be the
order of patches perhaps.
To get working dpatches I recommend using the 'dpatch-edit-patch' command.
While you are in the "edit" session you can apply patches as you are used
to (with the "patch" command). Once you leave the session the changes will
be written into a dpatch-compliant file. See the man page. And remember to
create an "unpatch" target in your rules file.
Never trust a system administrator who wears a tie and suit.
