[Pkg-bazaar-maint] Bug#604070: bzr-handle-patch: does not like some *.patch files

Package: bzr-gtk
Version: 0.98.0+bzr692-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/bzr-handle-patch

bzr-handle-patch does not like some patches: when trying to open the
patch 03_use_login.icq.com.diff [1], only the error message


    Malformed patch header.  No orig name
    'diff -Nurwd kdenetwork-4.4.5/kopete/protocols/oscar/aim/aimaccount.cpp

is displayed.

If bzr-handle-patch cannot handle all common patch formats (the comment
in the .desktop file reads "Apply Bazaar Bundle"), it should not become
the default handler for *.diff (or *.patch) files.
