Created attachment 271729 [details] [diff] [review] Proposed fix Currently, if a user of the C API uses JS_CallFunction to call a native function, and that native function causes JS_GetScopeChain to be called, we will assert. The problem is that native functions inherit the scope chain of their caller, but if there is no caller, then they don't get a scope chain at all. js_GetScopeChain can't deal with this. My proposed fix is to use the parent of the native function object if there was no scripted caller so we have *some* scopeChain to return in these cases.
Why not remove the assertion and let the result be NULL? /be
Because that's ambiguous to the caller -- JS_GetScopeChain can fail. Also, I'm calling it so I can create a new (exception) object based on the current scope chain. If JS_GetScopeChain returns null, then my only other option is JS_GetGlobalObject on the current context, which is badly wrong (as you pointed out to me the other day).
