Possibly, but it's not unheard of for text editors to save line number to
byte offset mappings (or to the lines themselves; see nvi for an example
that also uses Sleepycat DB) in simple databases.

In any case, Oracle being who they are, I'd suspect less a 404 than that
they tossed in some license agreement nonsense and it'll be necessary to
manually agree and download the patches (wouldn't be the first time they did
it, even).  Try renaming the downloaded patch files to have a .html
extension and loading them in a browser.
