This needs to be added to the test suite (when implemented)

libreJS v7 is now considered to be the current stable release and is a nearly total re-write; so this issue very likely refers to only to the previous version that was obsoleted my mozilla - all further development will be on libreJS v7 so this issue is marked as "wont-fix" for now unless it can be show to pertain also to libreJS v7

as this behavior was seen using libreJS v6, could someone try libreJS v7 on a firefox derivative >= v57 to see if the same issue still exists?

LibreJS reports: "NONTRIVIAL: eval has been found in code" when there is no call to eval. For example, in this code on LinkedIn: https://static.licdn.com/sc/h/br/37e50n29ct553mpi1d7ksrl4o

It doesn't call eval, but the code does contain code like "distanceValue" and "typeValue", which is probably why it thinks it's using eval().

Also, this has been mentioned in the bug mailing list. http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-librejs/2015-03/msg00001.html
