grunt serve: concurrent:server aborts due to warnings

suddenly my projects stops working with grunt. Unfortunately, I haven't committed my changes for a while into git, so I can't tell whats different.

When I run

grunt server --verbose
, I get the following output (everything above
...
passes with an
OK
):

...
Running "wiredep" task

So, grunt aborts when trying to execute the task
concurrent:server
. Inside this task, the
compass:server
task is executed (see the
Gruntfile.js
below). So, it must have something todo with compass, but I'm not sure if this line
Files: [no src] -> server
could give more hints to the problem.

This is my
Gruntfile.js
:

// Generated on 2014-06-16 using generator-angular 0.9.0-1

// # Globbing
// for performance reasons we're only matching one level down:

// use this if you want to recursively match all subfolders:
// 'test/spec/**/*.js'

module.exports = function (grunt) {

// Load grunt tasks automatically
require('load-grunt-tasks')(grunt);

// Time how long tasks take. Can help when optimizing build times
require('time-grunt')(grunt);

// Configurable paths for the application
var appConfig = {
app: require('./bower.json').appPath || 'app',

Answer

Stupid me!

For anybody encountering the same issue:

I had some import errors in my SCSS files. During the live reload of grunt, it would tell you that there is something wrong. But during the startup of grunt serve it just breaks and tells you nothing. So, check your imports and syntax of your SCSS files.
