[darcs-users] Problem with a mailed patch

>> Error applying patch to recorded!
It turns out it's due to end-of-line characters. Some of our files
have at some time been edited on a windows system and have \r\n line
endings. When darcs emails a patch set it (or the mail system)
normalises the line endings, then (I guess) the receiving darcs gets
upset by the apparent mismatch in the last character(s) of the original
lines as found in the patch hunks. The equivalent non-emailed patch
set is identical except for line endings, and applies without error.
