ReSpec broken for all(?) specs except ARIA, in some browsers

Both on my local copy and from RawGit, for all the AAM and other specs,
Respec is not running successfully.

The 2 scripts appear to be running in the wrong order. In Chrome and Edge,
the console gives me an error from resolveReferences.js (Uncaught
ReferenceError: respecEvents is not defined), followed by an error
from respec-w3c-common (Uncaught TypeError: Cannot redefine
property:  respecEvents).  In Firefox, the second error doesn't fire & so
the specs build with various other errors caused by the first script being
aborted.

Does anyone know why the main ReSpec script would be loading asynchronously
all of a sudden?  Or has it been doing that all along, and the errors were
simply not fatal enough to notice?

ARIA 1.1 compiles correctly, if slowly. The only difference seems to be
that it has another local script (aria.js) blocking the
resolveReferences.js script.
