Duh, indeed it was byte-compile-fix-header, thanks for investigating.
I think your patch has the problem that it changes the byte-position of
the text in the rest of the buffer, which will break lazy-loaded
docstrings and byte-code.
Can you try the patch below instead, which will simply report the actual
load-file-name rather than file name of the source.
