No, this is Pierre's patch:

If you run diffstat on the patch file for the -17 package,

$ diffstat bash-2.05b-17.patch

 16 files changed, 8353 insertions(+), 3964 deletions(-) will see that the vast majority of that is in configure, a generated file. 
That happens when you "autoreconf" a package to get the lastest autotool m4 macros
and recreate all the generated files from *.in and *.am.  When you see a package
with a ginormous patch it's usually because the maintainer did "autoreconf
--install --force --verbose" before packaging.  But, there are some actual patches
mixed in with the autoreconf noise, to be sure.
