Right, two hours of skimming through v8 issues later, here is a proper
report of the issue with a link to the patch fixing it.

I confirm the issue is real, reproducible in v8-3.14, and serious (since
it is so easy to reproduce).

Side note: any javascript code using "eval" directly, or indirectly
through Function(str), in nodejs, in browser, whereever, will have
security issues today or tomorrow... there are several developers still
using eval for checking syntax errors and it is wrong.
