Bug Description

edit-patch exits when run on a source package using quilt without any existing patches.

For example:

cd ~
bzr init-repo powernap
bzr branch ubuntu:powernap powernap.dev
cd powernap.dev
edit-patch temp

The script exits without reason.

Further examination shows that the script exits on the 'quilt top' command, which is returning a 2 error status.
The 'set -e' command at the beginning of the 'edit-patch' script is the reason the script immediately exits as well.
