Html stripping not working correctly in single-line field

There is a patch for this provided by Sitecore support. It can be downloaded here:

When applied the html stripping of formatting should work as intended.

The version of the patch says that it is built for Sitecore 8.2, but Sitecore support has told me that it will work fine for Sitecore 8.1 as well.
