This may be the case, but I'm not sure.  It depends where the problem
is... if there's trouble in your patch names, this could be trickier.

You can edit the patches after unzip (in a copy repository, of course), and
you don't need to re-gzip them, as long as you leave their names with the
.gz extension.  optimize --uncompress will do the ungzipping for you
