In the submitter posted a patch
between begin and end "verbatim" tags.  As subsequent comments in the report
reveal, the patch failed to apply because the space at the beginnings of some
lines was stripped out.

But it turns out the space is in fact present.  To verify this, hit the
"Quote" button at the top of this comment, and examine the text placed in the
New Comment box.  You'll see that many lines of the patch begin with a space
character; compare that to how the patch is rendered in the comment itself,
and notice that there the spaces are missing.

The bug tracker needs to display "verbatim"-tagged text actually verbatim. 
Especially, it cannot strip leading spaces, which are often significant in
code, patches, etc. -- the exact sorts of things "verbatim" is designed for.
