Subject: babel-french update breaks previous documents

Hi all,

the following minimal document stopped compiling with the update of

Hello World

With version 3.5j (TeX Live package revision 55742) it compiles, with
the current version 3.5k (TL package revision 56333) it fails with

! LaTeX Error: Command \fnum at table undefined.

Mind that the line
is essential, commenting it makes the document work again.

I am not really sure where the issue is, anyone having an idea?
