The emacs-25 version of `autoload-generate-file-autoloads' does not
contain a call to `char-after', so I think it has been rewritten in the
meantime.

Moreover, if I let Emacs generate file autoloads for a file with this
content:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
;;;###autoload (autoload 'icicle-mode "icicles"
;;;###autoload"Icicle mode: Toggle minibuffer input completion and cycling.
;;;###autoloadNon-nil prefix ARG turns mode on if ARG > 0, else off.
;;;###autoloadIt is a global minor mode.  It binds minibuffer keys."
;;;###autoloadt nil)
#+end_src

(update-file-autoloads
  "/home/micha/today/test.el"
   nil
  "/home/micha/today/test-auto.el")

the result looks like this:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
 (autoload 'icicle-mode "icicles"
"Icicle mode: Toggle minibuffer input completion and cycling.
Non-nil prefix ARG turns mode on if ARG > 0, else off.
It is a global minor mode.  It binds minibuffer keys."
 nil)
#+end_src

So this generates a sane docstring.

Is this acceptable?


Michael.
