Auto Wipers AP1 2018.6.1

Anyone else with AP1 on 2018.6.1 noticing the auto wipers activate often when there is no rain?

Ran the update on Wed and ever since the wipers have activated at random once or twice per trip with no rain in sight.
Not without 'no rain' as you ask, but there have been a couple swipes since I've updated (now that you mention it) that I thought were overly sensitive and a little out of character. At the time, I just figured even though the windshield was too clear to warrant it, that perhaps there was a droplet on the sensor.... 2015 85D AP1

Mine activated without rain with 2017.50.3. It's been a problem since they first came out. Most recently, I just turned the car on in my garage and got a couple of wipes. Then pulled out of the garage into the sun and picked up another wipe. Yet I can go a week without an extraneous wipe.

ETA: I'm on the first step, which should be low sensitivity.
