tested with binutils 2.9.1 and 2.10.1 and I get the same error... 
even when changing objcopy by strip
did some strace on the operation, and it seems that there's some mixup in
the section reading / writing

of the patch...

I'm not sure it's a version issue. looks more I have something broken 
somewhere... still have to figure out where :-(
however, it would be great if someone else could try Ulrich's patch to see
if I'm the only one with BAAAAAAAAD results...
