Ok, dpatch-edit-patch still applies all the other patches (although the
patch I want to create is the first in the series). It is just by
coincidence that none of these patches relies on the problematic patch
being applied first.

Also, dpatch-edit-patch invokes the clean target of the rules files,
which cannot work until I have that patch in place. A chicken and egg

All I want to do is create a dpatch compatible patch from two files. Why
is there no "dpatch create <file1> <file2>"?

Best regards,
