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

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

Works when changed to accessibility method. 

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