Not surprising, as that definition assumes it's running on LaTeX2.09 which
has been obsolete for more than ten years. The object of this redefinition
is to ensure single line spacing within a float. I am certain that
setspace.sty has a better and more current way of handling this.

However you have to help it a little: Before \documentclass do a

\makeatletter
\let\LTX at xfloat\@xfloat
\makeatother

and then after \documentclass do the reverse

\makeatletter
\let\@xfloat\LTX at xfloat
\makeatother
