Litecommerce breaks with new Google Analytics code

Google have updated their Analytics code again, this time adding a javascript try statement to prevent Javascript errors being displayed in the browser. This is a good thing, however, as provided by Google, this new code breaks the LiteCommerce template parser. The only solution I currently have is to wrap the Javascript statements in html comments. I had tried wrapping the Google Stats code with the CDATA method but this still breaks the LiteCommerce template parser as well (see http://javascript.about.com/library/blxhtml.htm for Javascript validation fixes).

Here is my current solution (in skins/default/main.tpl) where ****** is your Google Analytics account number and ** is your site number:
