As a comparison point, what happens if you build the app without Crosswalk enabled? Have you tried different versions of CLI and Crosswalk? Have you tried building with PhoneGap Build as a comparison?
The XDK builds a standard Cordova (aka PhoneGap) app. We do not control how the third-party plugins behave or interact with the rest of your app or with the open-source Cordova framework. It is likely some sort of compatibility problem with that third-party plugin or something having to do with your whitelist or CSP rules.
