Description Marcus Groeber 2007-09-20 10:25:39 PDT
I found that a webpage with the following code will reliably crash the browser with a KERN-EXEC 3 on my Nokia E90 (FW and probably the N95 with latest firmware as well:

  var str = "\u65e5\u672c\u8a9e";
  document.write(str.replace(/\s/, ''));

This was not an issue in older browsers, and I can't reproduce it on the emulator (with the outdated S60WebKit revision that can still be compiled), so it seems like a fairly recent regression, perhaps related to changes in Unicode support for regexps?

This sounds rather obscure, but is not quite as strange if you consider that this type of regexp is often used in "trim" functions to remove extra whitespace from all sorts of strings that might be thrown at it...
