How odd. One of the changes in that patch was to remove an escaped,
non-printable, character embedded in a print statement. The escape
sequence was intended to be seen by the terminal, triggering boldface,
color, etc. This is clearly not the best method for triggering such
behavior. Moreover, TeX does not accept such characters. 

My emailer set the encoding to `quoted-printable' instead of
`7bit'. I dont see the =3D problem here. It seems likely the patch
was effected during transfer (I tested that the patches applied
properly before I sent them). 

Unfortunately, I have no idea how to fix this.
