      Description

      If you create a widget that uses numeric keys for preference values, this can cause a Parse Error deeper in Wookie (most likely, in DWR) even if the values are cast to a String.

      To replicate, add this line to any widget:

      widget.preferences.setItem("12345","67890");

      Also:

      widget.preferences.setItem("12345a","67890");

      ...will fail, but not:

      widget.preferences.setItem("a12345","67890");

      I suspect this is something either in the wrapper.js or DWR engine.js. Unfortunately the debug tools in Safari aren't sufficient to trace it properly.

      As a workaround - just don't use numbers for preference keys!
