Is this still a problem for you?

This looks like it might be a corrupted file in your cache. Can you try running npm cache clean?

There have been a lot of improvements to npm -- especially around conflicts and race conditions during install -- since 1.3.21. Can you try updating your npm installation?

To update npm on Windows, follow the instructions here:

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 open a new issue!)

We haven’t heard back and we’re trying to clean up some old issues.  If this is still a problem, can you please reply and let us know?  We’ll be happy to reopen if necessary.
