three finger brightness causing freeze then crash on touchbar


I have a few customizations built for BTT and love it!

One that I have used flawlessly for a while is the three-finger slider on the touch bar to brighten and dim my screen.

I used the "small step" version for a while and it was great, but with my new workflow, I decided to remove the "small step" option.

Ever since I did that, BTT freezes whenever I try to use the 3 finger slider. Two fingers still work, and so does 4 fingers. But three-finger always freezes. It might be an issue with the commands.

I attached a console log.

I've tried all the standard restarting, resetting, reinstalling, and changing the slider settings.

I've just run out of ideas and the problem is repeatable so I thought I would report it.

Could you send me the debug info to after triggering the issue? (Help => Export Diagnostic Debug Information).

It seems to be a problem with the first generation Touch Bar Macbooks as far as I can tell

just realised (I was tired when I said that yesterday) btt doesn't crash for me, it just freezes and I have to leave the touchbar for about 20 secs. ill send you the debug info when I can...

Here's a link to the debug info
