How does this affect his auto-pen signing of the Patriot Act extension? Is it a legal extension or not? It must be tested.

I don’t believe that the Auto Pen thing is a big deal. I believe that Bush also used it to sign something.

This doesn't effect the auto-pen signing. A congressmen, Tom Graves (R-GA) sent a letter to Obama asking for the legal justification for using the auto-pen to sign.

A freeper found a legal opinion from W's White House counsel office saying the auto-pen could be used. Of course, that's just the WH opinion, not a court's determination in the matter.
