Dev mode won't open


Hi all, since I’m new here I firstly just want to say amazing work on Atom so far. It’s really well designed and I’m enjoying working with it a lot.

Unfortunately I’ve hit on an issue on OS X recently where Atom refuses to open in dev mode. Running atom --dev opens a new application icon in the doc but there’s no other response. Using the View -> Developer -> Open in Dev mode... menu option results in a blank white window with the dev tools open, and the following error in the console:

Error: Cannot find module 'coffee-cash'
    at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:328:15)
    at Function.Module._load (module.js:270:25)
    at Module.require (module.js:357:17)
    at require (module.js:376:17)
    at setupCoffeeCache (file:///Users/mike/github/atom/static/index.js:101:21)
    at setupWindow (file:///Users/mike/github/atom/static/index.js:72:3)
    at window.onload (file:///Users/mike/github/atom/static/index.js:36:7)

I’ve tried getting rid of any problematic settings/packages by completely removing the ~/.atom directory and re-downloading the app from, but this doens’t appear to help at all. Anyone know how I might fix this?
