Pipelines maxBuffer exceeded


I've been struggling for the last couple of days with this error:


      throw er; // Unhandled 'error' event
Error: stdout maxBuffer exceeded
    at Socket.<anonymous> (child_process.js:259:14)
    at emitOne (events.js:96:13)
    at Socket.emit (events.js:188:7)
    at readableAddChunk (_stream_readable.js:176:18)
    at Socket.Readable.push (_stream_readable.js:134:10)
    at Pipe.onread (net.js:548:20)

I haven't run my pipelines for the last month but last week I needed to deploy a new version of my code and it started failing.


My pipelines basically consists in installing some jspm/bower/npm dependencies, bundle my code and commit this to an external server.

I've tried different solutions like the "--silent" option in npm and bower, exporting the output of these package managers to an external log file, etc. But it keeps breaking at this point... I've run the same commands locally in my computer and everything works smoothly...

Can anyone help me?
