Hi Dan,

In my experience, this error can occur for all manner of reasons, which
generally have nothing to do with the specific code mentioned in the
error.  I think this code just happens to be among the first to fail when
the staff client is unable to load.  (It may as well say "Uh oh, something
went wrong").  My first step when this happens is to make sure all of the
XUL client files are in the right place on the server (e.g. check Apache
access logs) and make sure API calls are succeeding (Evergreen activity/ACT

Hope this helps,
