widget.php includes wrong javascript tag for category dropdown

The Category dropdown uses JavaScript, and embeds it using the wrong (old?) syntax. Patch:

I couldn't find the mistake that your describing in wp-includes/widgets.php with r7290.

Also, for future reference, please run a command like this:

svn diff > myPatchFile.diff

Then just attach that file. This way SVN handles it and it is much easier to read (when it is uploaded, we can view it using the Diff Viewer on Trac).
