Does not detect app launched if opened from recents in Android P. Only when launched from app icon or launcher.

I have a profile that detects when certain apps are launched. I found that if you launch the app from the app icon or launcher, it works fine (even if the app is currently in the recents list). If you re-open the app from the recents list, it doesn't detect the app as running or sometimes detects it but takes a long time and possibly only when you pull down the notifications. 

Android version: 9

Tasker version: 5.2.bf1

Changing the app check method from Accessibility to App Usage Stats does not appear to have any difference.

Does it work if you change the App Check Method in Preferences->Monitor?

Works when changed to accessibility method.
