Maybe you already thought about it, but:

When I use it manually, I save the whole patch-series as an mbox-file,
including the "--cover-letter", i.e. the first email saying [0/n]. When
I then say "git am patch.mbox" it complains there is nothing in. I then
have to say "git am --skip" and it goes on automatically.

Could that also be the case with your patchwork-setup?
