#1788: calling scipy.optimize.minimize with a sparse jacobian fails

Component: scipy.optimize | Version: 0.11.0

Comment(by furiousd):
Just realized that I misread/misunderstood the minimize function: for
minimizing SCALAR functions of multiple variables. I am trying to use it
for N-dimensional root finding. The difference being that sparse
Jacobians in the latter case are necessary for large-scale problems, but
the Jacobian for a scalar-valued function is much smaller!
So, maybe this is technically a bug but the impact is less than I had
originally expected...
