Code Inspection: Potentially invalid reference to 'this' from closure

Reports a this in closure that is used for referencing properties of outer context.

Example:

function Outer() { this.outerProp = 1; function inner() { // bad, because 'outerProp' of Outer // won't be updated here // on calling 'new Outer()' as may be expected this.outerProp = 2; } inner(); }
