HTML5 Geolocation lost functionality on 1103 update?

Hey guys, 

I made an app using the HTML5 geolocation function and it has worked before using the previous version of BB10, but upon updating the bundle 1103, the app stopped working.


My error handler keeps saying "geolocation timed out", and I tried it on several websites as well, and all of those are unable to fix my location. I know my code isn't suspect, as it worked just a couple days ago, and the code works on my browser.


Unfortunately, this happened when I submitted my app for review (on but the tester used the 1103 version of the update, and that's how I discovered the error. 


Any tips? Or is the Geolocation now broken =\. I've also updated my webworks.js file to the lastest version, and it works in firefox/chrome/safari and ripple, just not my device.

There are some geolocation issues in version  I recommend trying out your application using the new OS due out this week before making any changes to your application.
