Bug#28614: dpkg-dev: Interprets libgtkada_0.1a-6 diff file incorrectly

Package: dpkg-dev

Unpacking with 'dpkg-source -x' fails.

The diff file changes a line that begins with '-- '. This results in
a line in the diff that begins with '--- ', which is interpreted by
an apparently simple-minded check as a filename to patch, even though
the line number info provided should guard against this. Indeed,
patching by hand gives no problem whatsoever.

This means there is a valid source package that can't be unpacked
using the appropriate debian development tools. Please fix this!
