iPad/iOS 5 Safari - Functions should not eval parameter with name "arguments"

Web 2.0: 

I yesterday faced a very peculiar situation. A component from one of my web apps started throwing javascript errors on my iPad Safari as I was trying out some things from the app. It was a bit surprising as I had successfully tested the same component at the beginning of this week on the same iPad without any issues, no changes had been made to the component and nothing else struck me when I faced the issue. The fact that the same component was running successfully on all versions of all major browsers on a PC confused me further.
