gulp dest randomly repeating lines at end of file(s).

this happens a lot, but randomly. guessing there's an unflushed buffer somewhere.

EDIT: actually, it more looks like a double flushed buffer somehow...

Does it only happen with one task or does it happen with all? Could you post your gulpfile?

here's another run, on a build server, and a different file was affected (that I noticed)


Attaching the gulpfile here:


Stand by, I'm doing massive updates to our gulpfile for this project, it doesn't meet our standards atm.

Updates will probably mask away this problem unfortunately.


It's happening on more than one machine? That's very strange 😦

Is it just happening with one task (looks like the build-coffee or build-js tasks), or all of them?
