[Build-common-hackers] Bug#365524: cdbs creates/applies patch incorrectly

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.39
Severity: normal

I need to add a new file to a package. Doing this with cdbs-edit-patch results
in the following head lines:

diff -Nur octave-forge-2006.03.17/main/comm/gisequal.m octave-forge-2006.03.17.new/main/comm/gisequal.m
--- octave-forge-2006.03.17/main/comm/gisequal.m	1970-01-01 01:00:00.000000000 +0100
+++ octave-forge-2006.03.17.new/main/comm/gisequal.m	2006-04-30 19:54:19.000000000 +0200
@@ -0,0 +1,34 @@

Now, if cdbs applies this patch, it doesn't create a file 
but instead
i.e. a complete new directory structure is created with only the new file.

The relevant line from 'debian/rules apply-patches':
  Trying patch debian/patches/add_gisqueal.patch at level 0...success.

Changing the patch isn't difficult, but I think cdbs should start trying patches
at level 1.
