If the patch is mangled by the email, it would fail to apply (and the
build would fail) rather than cause what you're describing.

However, the current version of the patch is only a partial solution, so
I'm guessing you're simply running into one of the cases where it
doesn't work. I'm working on a more complete solution. Will post it once
it's ready :)
