But recent patch versions evaluate the "Index: full/dir/path" prefix that
"cvs diff" prints before each individual diff output. If you apply a
"patch -p0 <cvs-diff-output", everything works fine usually.

Oh, yeah: do NEVER omit the "-p0" (or whatever level) switch. It lures
patch into trying the current dir when it shouldn't.
