    Twice now I've had an issue where an unlock with apple watch goes awry (maybe because I simultaneously am putting my finger on the touch id). The result is the system gets all confused, and gets into a loop where you have to keep selecting your user account to log in, until you give up and "switch user," at which point you can log in but all your apps have lost their keychain info (tweetbot isn't authorized, your email accounts prompt to log in, etc.) A reboot fixes it.

    I've turned off "unlock with apple watch" for now since this has happened twice in two weeks.

    Not had that issue. I keep forgetting I have AW unlock on and put my finger on the Touch ID and nothing happens then a few seconds later I'm told my AW unlocked my Mac. This is with a Low end 15" tMBP.

    Now I have experienced Safari freezing up on me randomly. But I chalk that up to web plugin or something that hasn't been updated yet. Hopefully.
