I suspect this may be because of line endings. Are you generating the patches on a Windows machine? All patches to Python should be strictly in Unix format (LF for line ending, not CR LF). Can you configure your hg client and / or editor to do this?

I haven't touched Windows for some time but IIRC TortoiseHg does the right thing if your file is proper. In other words, perhaps it's the editor's fault. Your editor should not insert Windows line-endings into a Unix-y file (which Doc/library/xml.etree.elementtree.rst is).
