The most common reason is that the scripts _really_ want the index to 
match your current tree exactly. Run "update-cache --refresh". And if you 
have any uncommitted information, make sure to commit it first.

(Not _strictly_ true - you can leave edited files in your directory, and 
just hope the patch never touches them. The thing you should _not_ do is 
to do an "update-cache xxxx.c" to commit any changes to the 'index', 
because then the patch applicator will actually commit that one too).
