I'm running the exact code and do not get any IE7 hangs:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/prototype.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
Event.observe(window, 'load', function() {
    Event.observe($('btn'), 'click', function() {
        var j = ' {"easting": "518353", "northing": "168119"} ';
        var c = j.evalJSON();


<input type="button" id="btn" name="test" value="poo" />
