3.170 hides BTT touch bar widget aggressively

I've tried the latest alpha as well as restarting - neither had an effect on this bug.

Describe the bug
Since updating to 3.170 (from 3.148), the BTT touch bar is always getting hidden. As I switch back and forth between apps, any app that I have a custom touch bar for starts showing its own touch bar (e.g. Chrome) or no touch bar at all (e.g. Slack). I have to press the BTT icon to get my custom touch bar back and as I continue to work it again hide and the process repeats.

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
Touch Bar
