Your patch-posting procedure is yet in a bit problem state..

It does look like your Thunderbird 2.0 did wrap long text lines when you
included the texts into the posts.

The result is that currently your patches are not usable at all.

Your options:
   - instead of including the patch in message body, use Attach
   - use some other email program that does not scramble your texts
     (e.g. mutt + emacs)
   - publish the patch file on network somewhere, and just tell URL
     to that one in email
