If you use iTerm with Big Sur

A friendly warning to those who have opted to try the Big Sur beta and are using iTerm. I kept running into an issue where the terminal would freeze up and could only be recovered with a full system restart. It's seems I'm not alone and you can find details and a workaround here:

iterm2 issue #8965

In short the workaround is:

Disabling Enable session restoration under Preferences > Advanced > Session

Hope this saves anyone some time 😅
