Until very recently, address@hidden was an alias to address@hidden 
It is a separate list now; see http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/patch.

Although the tarball is well hidden in ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/diffutils/, the 
current version of patch is 2.5.9. Patch hasn't been activey maintained for a 
while now; I have yet to clean this up.

Your report is against version 2.5.4, and I cannot reproduce in 2.5.9 (and 
neither can you, it seems ;-).
