Thanks Daniel for your reply and for finding time to look at the
original problem.

Yes you are correct I am confused - not very difficult to do with not
being a Linux expert.  I downloaded the latest SVN and typed patch
filename.patch and typed in the path to the file the patch needed.
Running the patch again said the patch had already been applied so I
assumed the patch was applied correctly.

I will download the SVN version again and check that it still works -
is that a good way of confirming everything is okay?
