That's odd, I just tried applying it against a freshly downloaded 
tarball from samba.org and it applies with no fuzz:

fagus:~# tar xfz samba-3.3.0.tar.gz
fagus:~# cd samba-3.3.0/source/client
fagus:~/samba-3.3.0/source/client# patch -p0 < ~/client.c.patch
patching file client.c

Does your client.c look like this?

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 121621 2009-02-13 15:21 client.c

Have you maybe got line ending issues by any chance?  (something like 
perl -pi -e 's/\r\n/\n/' client.c.patch will fix that).
