Reason of the problem was the newly introduced class "Koha::Patrons"
about which I didn't know.

However I was able to use the new class methods instead of the old ones.
I especially liked the new class methods "is_debarred", "is_expired" and
"get _age".

There was only one problem with the documentation that should probably
be corrected: actually shows the
content of "Koha::Patrons" (with "s" at the end) even though the
document itself says the class is named "Koha::Patron". So the file name
"Patron.html" and the NAME "Koha::Patron" in the document should
probably be corrected.

while actually shows the
content of another class named "Koha::Patron" (without "s" at the end).
So the file name "Patrons.html" should probably be corrected.

Both classes do contain a method named "guarantor", the rest is different.
