index.js with export default as returns undefined #8987

Bug Report

Current Behavior
File structure:

|  └ index.js
|  └ index.js
|  └ index.js
└ index.js


export { default as ComponentA } from './ComponentA'
export { default as ComponentB } from './ComponentB'
export { default as ComponentC } from './ComponentC'

import { ComponentC } from 'Components' // Components is webpack alias to components folder

So the problem is when I import ComponentA in ComponentB with destructuring (import { ComponentA } from 'Components'), it's undefined. Behaviour is similar to circular dependency, but I don't think this should be treated as circular dep. Other imports works great, until I don't import other components in them.

Expected behavior/code
The component should be defined when imported with destructuring

Hey @BorisTB! We really appreciate you taking the time to report an issue. The collaborators
on this project attempt to help as many people as possible, but we're a limited number of volunteers,
so it's possible this won't be addressed swiftly.

If you need any help, or just have general Babel or JavaScript questions, we have a vibrant Slack
community that typically always has someone willing to help. You can sign-up here
for an invite.

If you are using babel-loader, Babel isn't traspiling those exports since they are handled by webpack.
