I've noticed two problems with ediff.

* It has a problem with spaces in file names
Ediff mistakes the space for the file name/date separator.  I've changed
it to look for a tab instead, which worked in my case.  But I don't know
if the tab is guaranteed by the diff format and hence whether this is safe
to do.

Incidentally, diff-font-lock-keywords exhibits the same problem

* Applying a patch with relative file names to a directory using
ediff-patch-file will look for the relative file names in the directory of
the patch instead of the to-be-patched directory.  That means, unless
those are equal, ediff will unnecessarily prompt for the path of every

Small patches are attached for both.
