[Ventura beta] Notifications - "BetterTouchTool added login items" on wake from sleep

Describe the bug
Many (10+) persistent notifications from System Settings on waking after a day in sleep mode. I have BTT registered as a login item, and System Settings still shows this to be the case (it's registered, just the once).

Notification reads:

Login items added
"BetterTouchTool" added login items. You can manage login items in System Settings.


Device information:

  • Type of Mac: MacBook Air 2020 (M1)
  • macOS version: macOS 13.0 Ventura beta 1
  • BetterTouchTool version: 3.786 (1931)

I left my Mac asleep on the beta boot for a day and came back to this. I've actually closed a few of the notifications already before the screenshot.

This is an initial report, and I dual boot with the release so it might be a while before I discover more, but I thought I'd kick off a thread to track the issue. I suspect this is part of BetterTouchTool's mechanism to ensure it's registered as a login item when the in-app setting is enabled. Reminds me of the iOS clipboard-reading fiasco where apps has to start querying before actually reading or add an in-app setting.

thanks for reporting! I'll fix that soon. Seems like currently even some requests that check whether BTT is a login item cause this.
