the function gse-number-rectangle use function read-number which is not
compatible
with old version. You have to change the line marked as following:

  (interactive
   (list
    (region-beginning) ; start
    (region-end) ; end
    (if (functionp 'read-number)
;; change this line  (read-number "First number [1]: " t "1") to this
        (read-number "First number [1]: " 1) ; start-at
      (string-to-int (read-string "First number [1]: " nil nil "1"))) ;
start-at
    (read-string "Suffix: " nil 'gse-number-rectangle-history) ;
suffix-text
    current-prefix-arg)) ; prefix
