Meteor-node-stubs installed, but still not seeing the 'util' function 'promisify'

I have a Meteor project that has worked just fine, and has had meteor-node-stubs. But upon recently adding the package crypto-random-string, I am getting this error: Uncaught TypeError: promisify is not a function. The app won’t start at all.

Okay, so promisify is right there in the package: crypto-random-string/index.js at 3f1ec4cc6b41e27294506be6442b83369dbdcb58 · sindresorhus/crypto-random-string · GitHub

But I can’t figure it out. meteor-node-stubs is in my project. It’s been working fine. promisify should be available on the client. I’ve removed node_modules and re-installed, and tried anything else I can think of.

Is this a problem anybody else has seen? Is this a Meteor 2.0 thing? Help.

I am getting my Meteor app running again by modifying the require of crypto-random-string/index.js
const {promisify} = require('util');
const promisify = require('util.promisify');

Just sharing in case it helps others. I already use patch-package for 3 other npm packages, so I’m adding a patch for this one and moving on. Not that it makes sense to me!

Is there another way to patch this wo editing the src code for libs?
if not, where exactly are the lib files stored? Thanks!
