What I had tested was reverting the recent ca-certificates-java change,
i.e. switching the dependency on
  openjdk-8-jre-headless | java7-runtime-headless
back to
  openjdk-7-jre-headless | java7-runtime-headless
(or similar)
That change was made later than the one in openjdk-8 and it proved to be
sufficient in my piuparts test to fix^Wnot activate that trigger cycle.
