macOS: why a Terminal window at startup?

Hi - since one of the recent Zwift updates on my MacBook Air (macOS Monterey 12.3), I’ve seen a new behavior whenever Zwift launches - a Terminal window opens up and runs a lengthy script (initial part included below). Why is this happening, and how do you make it stop? IMHO, an end user should never be exposed to a Terminal window - not only is it annoying, it opens the possibility of a user mucking up something in their system.

Thanks,
Barry

Hi @Barry_Smith1 welcome to Zwift forums

Shuji at Zwift HQ here. Just noticed your thread and looked into your server logs to see what might have triggered the terminal window. The day before you posted your question, it looks like the Zwift launcher app was updated to the latest version 1.1.1.

The installation of the launcher app would have triggered the terminal window. Now that Launcher 1.1.1 is installed - has the terminal window stopped appearing?
