I also am running into all sorts of errors with getting the node-inspector and debug to play nicely. I was having job issues (that revealed themselves in the same sort of way you are seeing) and now I cannot get the node-inspector to respect carriage returns.

Your specific error, however, looks like the address is being used. Check to see if you have other tabs in either tour terminal running either a node or web-inspector instance. Close them. I would do the same for any web-inspector windows or any where app.js is running. If you have a similar error, this will help.

I ended up having to use ps and ps aux to find processes and 'kill -9 ####(job number)' to terminate this stuff.... but I am down the rabbit hole of more problems.
