using "quilt" display garbled output for its diff command


hi

I am using this tutorial for learning quilt,
there are more as well

http://suse.de/~agruen/quilt.pdf

Code:
quilt refresh 
Refreshed patch flower.diff 
cat patches/flower.diff 
Index: debian/Oberon.txt

but if I then try to use the diff command I get garbled output

I have so far tried terminal editor nano
gui editors leafpad and mousepad
--without any improvement

I tried also different fonts in each where possible, and I use
terminal roxterm for my default terminal.
for my eye sight I prefer font
dejavu san mono points 12
--but have tried others as well.

any suggestions are most welcome
