[BUG] hg import not working on windows

I noticed when running hg import on windows that the 
popen("patch ... is failing. I run hg on a windows 2000

I found three items:
1. The name of the patch in popen is single quoted. Using
   double quotes helps
2. The patch command returns the file to be patched in quotes.
   Since the quotes are not removed repo.walk runs into problems.
3. I used dos2unix on patches which seems to break the patches.

Anybody seen similar problems?
