I went to create a configuration file, selected the wrong menu item, somethingorother happened, and I ended up with an blank .sublime-settings file.
The next startup, ST2 displays an error ("Error trying to parse settings") then "crashes." It doesn't actually crash though, it stays running in the background, preventing any future instances from starting up, even if the offending empty file is removed.
I think it should just ignore the empty file, offer an option to delete it, etc.
