Bug in new libjs-jquery package from last week

I believe the update to libjs-jquery, released last week, contains a
malformed jquery.min.js file.

On a (legacy) system with multiple web apps that make use of
/usr/share/javascript/jquery/jquery.min.js via symlink (specifically,
icinga and pnp4nagios), web browsers throw a syntax error:

jquery-1.8.0.min.js:3 Uncaught SyntaxError: Invalid or unexpected token

(A dozen other errors cascade from that one, as the other jquery
components also fail.)

Unfortunately, knowing there's a syntax error on line 3 isn't very
useful with minified js...

I've pasted the entirety of jquery.min.js into several online js
validators that fail to validate (https://codebeautify.org/jsvalidate
and http://esprima.org/demo/validate.html) but I'm not sure this is

Running jquery.min.js through a "code beautifier"
(https://beautifier.io/), and then running *that* output through the
Esprima validator yields:

Error: Line 4101: Invalid regular expression

... where line 4101 is, itself, about 4k in length. This is where I've
given up debugging.

Switching the symlink to point to /usr/share/javascript/jquery/jquery.js
resolves the issue, meaning no errors are thrown and, more importantly,
jquery works in the web applications.

I can provide additional data and/or test any changes if necessary.
