So I tried deleting it to see what happened and started the spotify client back up and it worked but only from the terminal. However, after a few more tries, it only worked part of the time 😕 So I am not sure what to make of that anymore.
I would be happy to send my logs to someone in engineering if you would like.
It is totally sporadic. Without fiddling with anything and starting the client works about 1 out of 3 times.
