JavaScript error opening patron search form

Bug #1359934 reported by Galen Charlton on 2014-08-21

Bug Description

Opening the patron search form in the staff client results in the following error being displayed:

  "\npatron/search_form.xul\nSyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected character\n and such"

This stems from the patch for OpenSRF bug 1316245, which replaces the JSON parsing routines with the native JSON.parse() However, JSON.parse() is stricter, and throws an exception if it's given an undefined value as its argument.

Note that the patch is assuming that we are choosing to run with JSON2js's new-found strictness. An alternative would be to change JSON2js in OpenSRF to restore the previous behavior when passed an undefined value.
