No idea what this means. After 50 reloads this will appear in console log.

require('events').EventEmitter.defaultMaxListeners = Infinity;

@AysadKozanoglu : Could you be more specific? I'm seeing this on a new machine / new install while running npm install on a project.

I had this error once. I solved it by placing the code in a separate Fiber like so:

// running job in a Fiber, if running without there will be a memory leak error
// (possible EventEmitter memory leak detected. 11 listeners added)
Fiber(function () {
    // code that causes the error
}).run();

I can't recall how I came up with the solution, but it worked for me.
