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

\let\LTX at xfloat\@xfloat

and then after \documentclass do the reverse

\let\@xfloat\LTX at xfloat

Then load setspace.

In any case the document class you are using is not suited usage these  
days. If you were told by someone to use it, tell them that LaTeX2e has  
been around for a looong time...
