Sorry, it's not actually git but mercurial I'm having trouble with.

After running 'rbt post' I run 'rbt patch <reviewid>' and get the error:

Patch is being applied from request 41123 with diff revision  1.
Failed to execute command: ['patch', '-i', '/tmp/tmps2NVdI']
can't find file to patch at input line 4
Perhaps you should have used the -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:

Skip this patch? [y]
