    Hmm, I'm not sure what you are referring to here.

    This is also strange, as when I use patch to apply a patch to files not
    checked out, patch asks me if I should check them out in write mode
    (which I do, of course).

    Of course, if you are using patch to apply changes to a BK tree it isn't
    really BK in the end. What I was referring to was importing a changeset
    would probably get the target files correct 100% of the time, unlike the
    situation you are describing with patch.
