Yes, it does contain Ninho's 386 patch (as well as other fixes). It's exactly here:
http://sourceforge.net/p/himemx/code/7/tree//trunk/himemx.asm?diff=55e89943a02bb13f257a06b5:6

That's exactly what happened, yes. I never had much contact with Japeth. At some point I was reinstalling my venerable 386SX to test DOSMid (among other things), and I got stuck with XMS support. Only many hours of testing/debugging/investigating I noticed that an unofficial patch exists, that makes HimemX compatible with 386SX - and it worked flawlessly on my hardware. At this moment I decided no one should endure the pain I had to go through, so I forked HimemX to sourceforge and tested/applied all community patches I could find.
