jQuery 1.4.3 breaks Prototype 1.6.1

According to my tests, the recent update of jQuery (#15135) breaks Prototype if both libraries are included at the same time (which they are if Prototype is used in the back-end, especially with the new admin bar).

Just try:


I get a element.dispatchEvent is not a function in Firebug which has been fired from the call
element.dispatchEvent(event); in line 4619 of prototype.js.

Reverting to the jQuery 1.4.2 directory of WordPress 3.0.1 solves the problem...

Can anybody confirm this?
