protobuf.js version: 6.4.0 (current master, 751a90f)

I have two files:

  1. ResolutionRequestInfo.proto
package SomeNamespace;

message ResolutionRequestInfo {
	optional ResolutionRequestType RequestType = 1 [default = UnknownResolutionRequestType];

enum ResolutionRequestType {
	UnknownResolutionRequestType = -1;
	Value1 = 1;
	Value2 = 2;
	Value3 = 3;
  1. and ResolutionRequestAttachment.proto
import "ResolutionRequestInfo.proto";

package SomeNamespace;

message ResolutionRequestAttachment {
    required ResolutionRequestType Type = 1;

when I call

./bin/pbjs -o ResolutionRequestAttachment.js -t static ResolutionRequestAttachment.proto

I got error:

            throw err;

Error: unresolvable field type: ResolutionRequestType

    at /home/hal/git/protobuf.js/cli/targets/static.js:137:13

When I set UnknownResolutionRequestType to positive value, pbjs generates js-file successfully

In v6.3.0 there was no such errors.
