It's not what it looks like it does.

E.g. the patch contains the following code:

!                 (with-temp-buffer
!                   (insert-file-contents tut nil 0 80)
!                   (search-forward ".")
!                   (buffer-substring (point-min) (point))))

Which seems to be searching for the end of a sentence (though this is
not a good way to do that -- it won't work with some languages), and
will in fact signal an error if there's no period in the first 80
