Issue with side menu inside view

I am creating an app where I’m using different side menus depending on the view. I found a CodePen that demonstrates this perfectly:

However, I want to make just one change on that example. I’d like the <ion-side-menu> tag to be inside menuBrowse.html, rather than in app.html, because I’d like to apply expose-aside-when to the menu on only one of my views. This works fine as demonstrated in the following CodePen example that I forked from above However, it uses Ionic 1.0 beta. If you update it to 1.2.4, it causes the side menu to stay exposed.

Is there a way in 1.2.4 to make this work as it did in 1.0 beta?
