Waverous-to-Stunt patching procedes

I'm making progress patching my fork of Stunt LambdaMOO by generating patches from the git log of Waverous LambdaMOO. There have been the occasional rejections by patch that have puzzled me a bit; I wonder if it's a white space problem? I doubt it. I didn't look terribly close because doing the edits by hand only took a minute. I'm now up against the dreaded TRY/EXCEPT/ENDTRY set of C preprocessor macros. By my commit log in Waverous:
commit c7b9cf521033fa816fbe650c8d00c720e453cfdf
Author: Steve Wainstead 
Date:   Sun Jun 7 19:28:43 2009 +0000

    Replaced the TRY, CATCH and ENDTRY macros with their respective
    code bodies to solve a void pointer problem.

Geez, that was three years ago? I was hacking away in my little second-bedroom-turned-office in Jackson Heights, Queens; and these days I'm in a high rise in downtown Las Vegas.

Anyway this patch was completely rejected. It's late and my brain is too short on glucose to get the job done. Time to push to master and try to catch up on MOO-talk again. I can't keep up with it lately!
