Platform 1.3.0 OS MacOSX/WinXP, iPhone emulator 3.1.3, android emulator 2.1

Please take a look at example on the documentation page for Titanium.UI.Window, "Passing data" section. You have variable a and method b. I tried to reproduce this in my project. In app.js I have method, variable, TabGroup, 2 Tabs which have windows created with url property and a and b attached. I can access a and b from child window on iPhone, but only variable a on Android. When I try to call method b, smth. like Titanium.UI.currentWindow.b() I get an error from rhino JS library, smth. like "b is not a method, it's an object and not callable". Actually it's true, on Android, b is an object of KrollContext, not function, I can see this when I print Titanium.UI.currentWindow.b to standard output. I even can call Titanium.UI.currentWindow.b.call() and it even works but I can't pass any arguments to b, anyway, IMHO this feature is totally broken on Android. iPhone is OK here

    Correction: not KrollContext but KrollCallback

    Finally I'd like to say, it's not only problem of currentWindow property, any *Proxy object's custom methods have same problem, for example:

       var object = Ti.Module.createSomething({});
       object.specialHandler = function(arg){/*Handler here*/};
       //Somewhere inside handler

    raises same error, specialHandler is not a method anymore. It's a blocking bug for me on Android

    This is really a duplicate, special case of #915
