Just to be clarify a bit more, a "patch" fixes one thing, or several 
closely related things. A patch can contain changes to multiple files, 
when multiple files need to be changed to fix something. After applying 
a single patch, Wine should be able to be recompiled and run, presumably 
with whatever was being fixed now working.

In the case of your original email, where there is one attachment for 
menu size and one for nonclient size, they probably should be sent in 
separate patches/emails.
