[theme-reviewers] jquery 1.6.1

Greetings ...

I was updating my theme after posting a question on this list a few days
ago. Part of my edits relate to enqueuing and registering scripts. In the
process, I was also reading on the WPTRT site about the majority consensus
regarding using the WP bundled versions of jQuery rather than a CDN version.
My theme was already setup to use a 1.6.1 CDN version. I know that with WP
3.2.1 that jQuery 1.6.1 is bundled; which, is great. However, I discovered
the file wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js is not the same as
http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.1/jquery.min.js. They have
the same time-stamp & comments. However, there are not identical. I
discovered they are not the same jquery file because, when using the bundled
version, some mouseover or hover behaviors do not work my theme. However,
they work as they are supposed to with the Google API version. If I copy the
Google version into the bundled jquery.js file and save it, everything works
fine.  On the face they appear to be the same file. However, they are not.
This leads me to two questions. First, is that by design; are they supposed
to be different? Second, if they are supposed to be the same, should I be
submitting this as a bug?
