The trouble I had turned out to be one with line endings. For some reason patch does not behave as Emacs on w32 when it comes to line endings. A line and should just be a line end in my opinion. The patched text file should retain its original line format. If this is possible then that would really give me and other using w32 a fair chance of doing useful work. So I hope to get in contact with the patch maintainer about this.

I use the GnuWin32 port of Patch on Windows, and it works fine for me.
Since I checkout Emacs files with -kb option to "cvs up", they (the
text files in Emacs source tree) have Unix-style EOLs.

But I am just using the method for checkout that is shown on the Savannah page. I think that should work. That is why I am suggesting that patch should be a little bit more friendly.

Unfortunately I do not even understand exactly what you are doing.
