Ringe says that loss of -j- occurred everywhere except after -i-, so going by what he said, this must be something else. It is a good question though. By the natural operation of sound changes, some class 1 weak verbs would have lost their -j-, if they had stems ending in vowels. I wonder what happened to them, and whether this is an example.
