Risking the wrath of the gurus for answering this: I have found, that when 
using "patch", it often changes the status bits of the files. I usually need 
to chmod a bit to get it working again, or running the update script.

And, while I am at it, you need to read:
to understand the bugzilla "rules" on contributions. It will make it a lot 
easier for you! :-)

Also, in order to get any patch for the XML-RPC accepted, you need to follow 
the rules for returning error codes, and you need to document the methods you 
add, following the rules for that! I know from experience, that it can take a 
while to get it rigth == getting a reviewer to approve. OTOH, there is no 
question that the sort-of rigid process improves the final result.

One of these days I will fix the stuff the reviewer (Max) has pointed out in
- currently waiting for a bugzilla 3.0 update on our main installation...
