Hi folks, I'm getting errors when require-ing foreign libs in version 1.10.439

My project is set up according to, but without leiningen.

So, there's deps.edn, {:deps {org.clojure/clojurescript {:mvn/version "1.9.908"}}}

(require '[ :as b])

(b/watch "src"
  {:output-to    "main.js"
   :output-dir   "out"
   :main         'hello-es6.core
   :target       :nodejs
   :foreign-libs [{:file "src"
                   :module-type :es6}] ;; or :commonjs / :amd
   :verbose      true})

And the cljs and js files copied from those instructions

├── hello_es6
│   └── core.cljs
└── js
    └── hello.js

Then I can do clj ./watch.clj (with clojure 1.9) and it works great, node main.js prints the expected message. But if I just change deps.edn to {:deps {org.clojure/clojurescript {:mvn/version "1.10.439"}}}, it breaks. First there's an error about clj-oss/module-deps, which, ok I wanted to use npm anyway so I install that, And then after a clean and a recompile, it fails with,

$ node main.js
return module$Users$jb$src$hello_es6$src$js$hello.sayHello();

TypeError: module$Users$jb$src$hello_es6$src$js$hello.sayHello is not a function

    at Module.load (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:620:32)
    at tryModuleLoad (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:560:12)

The error persists after adding :npm-deps true to the compiler options.
