We have discovered a similar problem, but it is only reproducible in PhoneGap or when requesting files from a local filesystem. If this is your case, you can download the latest internal build, which addresses it.
Another known limitation is that remote views do not work in Google Chrome when requesting from a local file system. This is due to ajax restrictions.
