This is similar to issue #3398. I took a look at the .rej and .diff files in the temp folder--they look almost identical. If I try to patch locally with the diff file, it works just fine.

If I take a look at my apache error logs, I see something like:
Warning:root:Attempting to override delete count on FileDiffData [hash] from 16 to None (FileDiff None)
