If you redefine the JAVASCRIPTS or the STYLESHEETS variables in your 
external_resources file, it will totally ignore the default values of those 
variables. For the record, here are the default values :

JAVASCRIPTS = DATADIR/jquery.js, DATADIR/jquery.corner.js, \
                         DATADIR/jquery.json.js, DATADIR/cubicweb.compat.js,\ 

(this can be found in cubicweb/web/views/webconfig.py)

CSS & JS defined in those variables will then be included in every page served 
by your application. In a standard cubicweb application, those default files 
are more or less required in order to have a fully operational application 
(which is certainly not a good thing considering the ton of JS files 
required). Therefore in your case, are you sure you simply haven't forgotten 
one of those files ? 

One last thing, if your JS file is not required in most pages of your 
application, you should maybe think about only doing the :


in the views specifically requiring it.

Hope this helps.
