If you invoke patch 'by hand', then you won't get the executable flags.
But in the dpkg-dev package there's a binary to make it easier for you:
dpkg-source -x albumshaper_2.0-1.dsc
This will unpack the original source, apply the diff and set +x on

Yes, it shows that. I do not know why I haven't had qt3-dev-tools
installed then (I had to do it by hand in order to build your

My second problem: now lintian complains about it being set. :( Will

Ps: Do you know that upstream also put a .deb on their page but with
a greater version number than yours? Maybe that's done by you as well...
