The try invocation looks like this:

buildbot try --who nerv at dawncrow.de --properties=comment="78111:
Subject:  wineview: Rename view to wineview and install it"
--connect=pb --master= --username=blah --passwd=blah
--diff=78111.patch  -p

When I submit it, buildbot try says "No comment" or the like, so I suspect
I'm doing something wrong.  The --properties option does get the
patch description onto the build status page in the build properties, though.
