Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2005-11-29 17:53:39 UTC
Just for future reference:  Patches that are cut and pasted into bug
reports almost never apply properly.  Cut and paste usually converts
tabs into spaces and all sorts of other fun that make the patch fail
until manually edited or completely redone by making manual edits to
the source files and regenerating a patch from scratch again.

Also, bugzilla can potentially word-wrap them, or do other fun things
to break them.

Please always attach patches as unified diffs directly as file
attachments that can be downloaded and applied to the source they
were made from, with much less chance of failures or fuzz.
