[snipped the explanation]

This sounds like a bug. I have seen some warnings using SVN when
gardening several weeks ago so it may not be only you.I haven't filed
a bug at the time and now I don't have the errors handy :(

That said I don't know how svn-create-patch works these days so it's
better to file a bug and get the relevant people to look into it.

If you have tried the previous link I send, I really don't enough svn
/ cygwin magic to help you.

Using "Tools/Scripts/webkit-patch upload" would like lead to the same
error if it's lower level that our tools but it's worth a try.

Another alternative is using git.

If you are really hitting some bugs in our tool, just fixing them
would be your best course of actions. Make sure you get someone who
knows this to acknowledge the issue as I don't know what's going on.
