I have an idea if you're open to alternatives:

1) Dump all exising patches.
2) Create a "known good" patch from retail -> 2136.

New or retail users will just use the update w/o issues.

Everyone else can use the tarball to get themselves to 2136.

Just an idea, but it seems to me to be a better solution than possibly 
dealing with this long term.

Also, FWIW, I'm using a current Slackware beta which exhibits the same 
problems as Debian unstable.
