This particular problem is the result of this bit in the body of

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(if (> (point) pos)
    ;; We already moved forward by one because we started from
    ;; within a function.
    (setq arg (1- arg))
  ;; We started from after the end of the previous function.
  (goto-char pos))

When the whitespace is skipped after doing the initial position
calculations, point, which ends up either on or after the

> ;; Comment before a defun

line, is indeed after `pos`, a recording of point before doing any
movement. The assumption that we were in a function body, as stated in
the comment, doesn't hold. So the definition count is erroneously

Nothing has come to mind for a method to fix it without breaking other
things. Perhaps the solution is obvious for someone else? Suggestions
would be nice if you have them.

(As an aside, to vent a little, it's rather frustrating that both pre-
and post-patch do what you regard as TRT in different
circumstances. Especially so because pre-patch is only doing TRT as a
result of what I would say is two bugs canceling each other
out. Obviously not your fault, but still frustrating.)
