Object.clone( uriObject ) fails #1076

I've run this code using jsfiddle.net:

uri = new URI( );
alert( uri.toString( ) );
alert( Object.clone( uri ).toString( ) );

Under Chrome, works flawlessly. However, using IE8 (8.0.7601.17514, 32bit), first alert works but second one shows '[object Object]'.

Hence, using Request.JSON( { url : myURIObject , ... } ) is not possible under IE8.

Workaround would be Request.JSON( { url : myURIObject.toString( ) , ... } ).

@PabloCampos this is a old issue. I will close it now.

You probably found the solution/problem here yourself also....
The problem is that URI has a method .toString() and in the source code it looks like:

var toString = function(){
    return this.get('value');

So, since Objects have also a .toString() the best here is to use .get('value') which is what you have in the first alert. So the solution here would be

uri = new URI();

and this works fine in IE8 also.
