As of r75274, patrol tokens accepted by action=patrol
and generated by
list=recentchanges are no longer equal to edit tokens and are no
longer the same within a session. Instead, they are now different for
every recentchanges row (i.e. they depend on the rcid).
It may take a while for this change to be deployed to the Wikimedia
cluster, but in the meantime changing your clients to no longer depend
on the patrol token to stay the same can't hurt.
This has changed again in r78141. Patrol tokens no longer depend on
rcid; instead, they are the same throughout the session (like the edit
token is), but NOT equal to the edit token. Also,
api.php?action=patrol now only accepts POST requests.
The changes in r75274 were never part of any release and were never
deployed to Wikimedia wikis.
