strokeText doesn't work on canvas using BB10 Dev Alpha A

Has anyone else had issues with strokeText on canvas? I have tried everything and have a workaround it just seems like an obvious bug that I'm hoping someone has an answer. Example code attached, when its run on dev alpha only the fill text shows up.


<canvas id="canvas" width="400" height="400"></canvas>
window.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function(){

var canvas = document.getElementById("canvas");
var context = canvas.getContext('2d');

context.fillStyle = 'green';
context.strokeStyle = 'black';
context.lineWidth = 2;
var fontSize = (canvas.height / 8);
context.font = fontSize + 'px Impact';
context.textAlign = 'center';

context.fillText("fillText", 100, 50, canvas.width * .9);
context.strokeText("strokeText", 100, 100, canvas.width * .9);

}, false);
