Full Kernel Panic with V3.167 and 10.14.6

Describe the bug
I was getting a full and immediate black-screen kernel panic on startup. Testing my startup items one by one I found that BTT is the culprit. There is APFS kext in both crash report examples I attach below. I don't get this crash on my Macbook Pro, same BTT and macOS versions...

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

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: iMac16,2
  • macOS version: 10.14.6 (18G84)
  • BetterTouchTool version: 3.167

Additional information (e.g. StackTraces, related issues, screenshots, workarounds, etc.):

Have you updated little snitch to the latest version? The previous one could cause kernel panics.

BTT doesn't cause kernel panics unless some faulty hardware or drivers are installed - it runs as a normal application without kernel extensions. (The log just shows that BTT was active at that moment, but that's most likely just bad timing due to its loading position)

Thanks Andreas, I did need to update Little Snitch, and I also reinstalled the 10.14.6 from the Combo updater, restarted in Safe mode etc. One of those things fixed whatever was causing the Panic.
