Build Identifier: 

The programmers that are using our bugzilla system are used to creating and
submitting their patches as context diffs (with the 'diff -c' command). I can
get the Patch Viewer to work as expected with patches created with a vanilla
'diff'; however, it doesn't seem to like context diffs. Is there an easy way to
get this to work?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a patch with diff -c (or cvs diff -c)
2. attach patch to a bug in a bugzilla system with the Patch Viewer enabled
3. attempt to view the patch

Actual Results:  
there is a blank screen between the Patch Viewer controls, and the footer
control bar at the bottom. Using a normal diff, this is where the patch would appear

Expected Results:  
Displayed the patch in the full colourised glory

We have no control on PatchReader on CPAN, and bugs should be reported to rt.cpan.org.
