Grunt watch fails on Mac OS X Maverick

TL;DR: upgrade node to v0.10.21

I upgraded to maverick yesterday and along with disastrous reset of php.ini and httpd.conf i also experienced failing grunt watch.

edgars@Freyr ~/D/n/s/server> grunt watch
Running "watch" task Job 1, 'grunt watch' terminated by signal SIGBUS (Misaligned address error)

Solution was trivial – update node as well.

sudo npm cache clean -f
sudo npm install -g n
sudo n stable

Which resulted in node update to v0.10.21 (was v0.10.20)

edgars@Freyr ~/D/n/s/server> node -v
