i have a report where a change in the fuzz handling causes autodetection 
failures in how to apply a patch

so start with this simple tarball:
        wget http://bugs.gentoo.org/attachment.cgi?id=210551 -O t.tgz

extract it and enter the subdir:
        tar xvf t.tgz
        cd tripwire-2.3.1-2/

then grab the patch:
        wget http://bugs.gentoo.org/attachment.cgi?id=210553 -O diff

and try to apply it:
        patch -p0 -F3 < diff

with patch-2.5.9 and older, you'll get an error (since the files in question 
are missing).  with patch-2.6, the patch will "apply".
