I think it's your JavaScript '\r' processing that's broken.  Certainly the
error ("unexpected EOF while parsing") is consistent with having a \r on the
end of the expression.  Won't this:

    if (input.length == 1)

always fail in the case where the user has typed a newline?  I'd ditch that
code and do it at the server end:

    expr = expr[4:].strip()
