After updating to macOS 10.13.1, my Login Items have vanished. Some users have reported this behavior in earlier betas, but this is the first time I've experienced it in a release.

Is there a reason for this behavior. Is there a way to identify what items I had configured so I can restore them?

I have lost all my login items too after upgrade to macOS 10.13.1.

You could take a look the plist file at ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginitems.plist, it may still contain names of login items, then add them back manually. I recovered mine in this way.

I guess 10.13 has moved login items config to somewhere else but failed to migrate old ones.
