Didn't you already file a bug against dpkg/patch for this, noticing that
it it was patch-2.2 that caused this?

Anyway, to help you with something else (see debian-bugs), I also
tried to unpack xkobo, and only succeded after downgrading my patch-2.2
(unstable) to patch-2.1 (from bo). Probably the real bug is in dpkg, though.

(sending this to the mailinglist in case other people still want to know this).
