throws is an ES3 reserved word. This line causes an error in some older engines, including NarwhalJS: https://github.com/jquery/qunit/blob/e34ffb61488459f6823ded82e19865ba4b46e2ed/qunit/qunit.js#L499

See http://mothereff.in/js-properties#throws; either rename throws into something else, or quote the property name. (Renaming is probably safest though.)

To fix this, this line will need to be changed as well: https://github.com/jquery/qunit/blob/e34ffb61488459f6823ded82e19865ba4b46e2ed/qunit/qunit.js#L549 Use ['throws'] instead of throws here, or just rename the property to something that has never been a reserved word.
