I think this is expected.  It doesn't really make sense for "patch" to
use a path since it includes the header and commit message, so it
doesn't take a path argument.  (Hopefully you created that URL manually
and didn't follow a link - if we generate such a link that is a bug.)

If you want a diff without all the HTML markup you can use "rawdiff":
