Package lock is not idempotent on a roundtrip

What I Wanted to Do

I’m trying to make my app build on my ci with npm ci

What Happened Instead

Error on npm ci:
‘.’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,

Reproduction Steps

$ npm init

<Enter until finished>

$ npm i --save firebase@4.10.1
$ rm node_modules
$ rm package-lock.json
$ npm i
$ npm ci <= this should fail with 
'.' is not recognized as an internal or external command

Details

I think there are 2 issues with my problem. One is with grpc 1.10.1 that is doing the
‘.’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, this has been fixed by them in the version 1.15.1

When i’m installing firebase@4.10.1, package-lock.json write grpc: “^1.9.1” which then install grpc 1.15.1. But when I delete the package-lock, npm install grpc 1.10.1 and rewrite package-lock.json grpc: “1.10.1” and install grpc 1.15.1.

Doing npm i --save firebase@4.10.1 put the package-lock.json back in the right track afterward.
