The patch does fix the test case:

(defun test-bug ()
  (global-set-key [header-line mouse-1] 'foo)
  (setq header-line-format "a"))

(defun foo (event &optional arg)
  (interactive "e\nP")
  (setq foo (cons arg event))
  (message "%s" foo))

C-u mouse-1 on the header line with and without the patch, and you'll
see the prefix arg being passed through, and being dropped.
