New submission from Thomas Arendsen Hein <thomas at intevation.de>:

While trying to import a patch with linewrap damage:

$ hg import x.patch 
applying x.patch
abort: bad hunk #3 @@ -119,11 +138,17 @@ def dodiff(ui, repo, diffcmd, diffopts,
 (12 11 17 17)

$ patch -s -p1 < x.patch 
patch: **** malformed patch at line 83: tmproot)

The output of GNU patch is much more informative to me.
