Current behavior

Exporting a function named toString like so breaks AoT with the following error:

0% compilingCould not resolve module 'function toString() { [native code] }' relative to file /Users/pawelkozlowski/work/gitrepos/pkozlowski-opensource/core/src/util/util.ts
10% building modules 3/3 modules 0 activeModuleNotFoundError: Module not found: Error: Can't resolve './../../$$_gendir/demo/src/app/app.module.ngfactory' in '/Users/pawelkozlowski/work/gitrepos/pkozlowski-opensource/core/demo/src'
at factoryCallback (/Users/pawelkozlowski/work/gitrepos/pkozlowski-opensource/core/node_modules/webpack/lib/Compilation.js:230:39)

Expected behavior

Functions named toString are allowed or there is a precise documentation and clear AoT error when a "disallowed" function named is used.

Minimal reproduction of the problem with instructions

This used to work in rc.5 and is linked to the function name (renaming the utility function in question from toString to sth like stringify makes the error go away.

What is the motivation / use case for changing the behavior?


Please tell us about your environment:

OSX, node v6.9.5

looks like it was introduced here #15367
module is a function but must be a string
