YQL-Console: yahoo.finance.stock suddenly broken? JavaScript syntax error in response

Hi all,

since last week I'm tinkering with YQL, so I'm a newbie when it comes to it. Starting last weekend the handling of yahoo.finance.stock seems broken. The console (or CURL) yields a 'double default label in the switch statement'. When I open the corresponding XML content file, I see two defaults indeed:


A likely related file in the referenced Github project doesn't have two defaults in the switch statement:


As this file wasn't updated for 3 years, can it be caused by some broken caching? Any hints how I can fix this issue?

Kind regards,
