Visual Studio Code: Fixing Python Intellisense

Today my colleague, Dmitry Efremov, got an issue after installing the latest VSCode and Python extension - intellisense plainly stopped working for all packages except few very basic.
After enabling logging for the extension ("python.devOptions": ["DEBUG"] in user settings), it turned out that jedi, tool used for intellisense, fails with the next message in the output:
stderr jediProxy
Error (stderr) Traceback (most recent call last):

  parser_cache_item = pickle.load(f)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'ParserWithRecovery'

After modifying onjayamanne.python-0.3.17/pythonFiles/jedi/ to print some debug info, it turned out that the problem was in the cache which the newer version of extension or jedi did not properly clean up.
So the solution turned out to be to clear the cache:
rm -rf ~/.cache
