Is this still a problem for you?

There have been a lot of improvements to npm -- especially around conflicts and race conditions during install -- since 1.3.8. Can you try updating your npm installation?

To update npm, run npm -g install npm@latest

We are trying to clean up older npm issues, so if we don't hear back from you within a week, we will close this issue. (Don't worry -- you can always come back again and re-open it!)



Closing as abandoned.
