I cannot verify whether or not this will be fixed in the next release but, have you tried using Winre? With Winre you don't have to worry about chrome throwing exceptions due to missing modules because the app will have already been loaded onto your device, therefore it will have all the modules necessary.
Yes, im using Weinre and it works great, but I still miss being able to quickly test my code without having to deploy on a device each time. RhoSimulator takes about 5 secs to start, while the smallest change takes about 2 minutes to deploy in android.
However, I strongly advise people experiencing this bug to use device deploy + Weinre rather than RhoSimulator, since the latter has a very unpredictable behaviour (which is exactly the opposite of what you want when debugging something).
