Bug? b4xlibs using b4xlibs with Files in Release mode

It looks like resources in the Files folder from a sub-b4xlib (a b4xlib that is used in another b4xlib, using B4J.DependsOn) are not decompressed in Release mode and hence not found by the compiler.

Situation:

1. helper.b4xlib
code.bas
manifest.txt*
Files
---> helper.js

* content of manifest.txt
Version=1.01
2. css.b4xlib
code.bas
manifest.txt*
Files
---> css.js

* content of manifest.txt
Version=1.01
B4J.DependsOn=helper
3. DemoApp
Referenced libraries: only css.b4xlib

When compiling the Demo App in Debug mode, no problems.

When compiling the Demo App in Release mode, the b4xlibs/Files subfolder only contains css.js, NOT helper.js and the compiler shows something like this:

B4X:
B4J Version: 7.80
Java Version: 9

Does it work if you reference the 'helper' library from DemoApp?
Yes, but I thought the whole point of B4J.DependsOn was that you, as a user of a library, didn't had to worry about other libraries the referenced library used. And I found it weird I did not get the above error in debug mode, only in released mode.
