            Bug ID: 158128
           Summary: JS parser incorrectly handles invalid utf8 in error
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified

The bug occurs with an input like this:

The initial parsing of this results in the \udeaf escape being converted to an actual literal. This is correct.
eval then parses that string, which results in a parse error while parsing the parameter list (string literals aren't valid parameter names).

The bug occurs when we try to actually set the error message:
failWithMessage("Expected a parameter pattern or a ')' in parameter list");

This tries to produce an error message that includes the bogus token:
Exception: SyntaxError: Unexpected string literal "<The failing token>". Expected a parameter pattern or a ')' in parameter list.

This string is produced via concatenation in PrintStringStream (or whatever it's called), which calls fromUTF8() on the buffer, because \udeaf isn't a valid utf8 sequence fromUTF8 fails and returns String().

The parser then checks the error state by checking errorMessage.isNull(), which it now is. This leads to the parser continuing in a bogus state and subsequently crashing.
