There seems to be a problem with Cygwin's quilt. This simple example 
simply alters a #define from 'MESAGL' to 'NX_MESAGL'. That's it.

New quilt created, ok.
New patch, ok.
Edit file, ok.
Refresh (create patch), ok.
Rollback changes, ok.
Reapply patch.. error:

  >>> quilt push
  >>> Applying patch test.patch
  >>> patching file Imakefile
  >>> Hunk #1 FAILED at 2.
  >>> 1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- rejects in file Imakefile
  >>> Patch test.patch does not apply (enforce with -f)

Extract quilt_cygwin_bug to a directory, cd in, and run 'quilt push' to 
generate the error.
