This seems to be a peculiarity of how svn creates patch files for
moves. Patch, at least on my machine never actually removes empty
files, and you need the old file to be there to remove its contents
for the patch to apply cleanly. So try:

svn move rrefonlinebackupdbnowaitproc.dita rrefbackupdbnowaitproc.dita
cp rrefbackupdbnowaitproc.dita rrefonlinebackupdbnowaitproc.dita
patch -p0 -i derby1685_ref3.diff
# verify that rrefonlinebackupdbnowaitproc.dita is in fact empty, and:
rm rrefonlinebackupdbnowaitproc.dita
