nodemon requires pstree.remy (^1.1.0 - installed 1.1.0) -> ps-tree (^1.1.0 - installed 1.1.0) -> event-stream (~3.3.0 - installed 3.3.6) -> flatmap-stream (^0.1.0 - npm installs 0.1.2).

This last one is very suspicious.
See: dominictarr/event-stream#115

Please either force version 0.1.0 of flatmap-stream or update event-stream to latest version (which no longer requires the affected module).
