[TIMOB-5355] Javascript parser crash on device when using commonJS modules

Here's what the app.js file looks like:
var TextEditWindow = require('TextEditWindow').TextEditWindow;
Here's the TextEditWindow.js file:
exports.TextEditWindow = function() {

	var win = Titanium.UI.createWindow();
	return win;

exports.TextEditWindow.prototype.calculateBottom = function(orientation) {
	var calculatedBottom = 10;
	return calculateBottom;
Without a ";" at the end of TextEditWindow, it crashes on-device, but works in the Simulator. The crash said there was a parse error at line 3 (obviously nowhere near the problem), and doesn't specify which file. Either the parser should be a little less strict, or we should be able to get a more accurate error message.
