Atom crashes when Project Folder is an sshfs-mounted drive - new with Mac OS High Sierra


Ever since I updated my OS to High Sierra, Atom crashes daily whenever a Project Folder is located on a drive mounted using sshfs. This would not happen with this frequency before. Atom gives the dialogue that it has crashed, and sometimes I can select ‘reload’ and fine, but other times I have to Force Quit Atom and relaunch. Very disruptive to my workflow.
