Appending "hsLang" to all links? What is this?!SOLVE

For one or two days we've observed yet another unannounced change in the way links for HubSpot COS websites are handled. Now all the internal links get a parameter appended, namely the hsLang. This request returns a 301 "moved permanently" with a location header of the original URL (without the parameter).
This is bad for the following reasons:
- it's not OK from an SEO point of view
- linking to cross-language resources, now turns into a 404 error. Example: linking from a localised page to an english resource, due to this hsLang addition, the link is pointing to a resource that doesn't exist, thus the 404.
Is this a bug? Is this a temporary patch which will get removed?
Come on HubSpot - these things are pretty critical, you cannot just change them and release them to live without at least notifying your dear users.
