Bug Description

On startup gm-notify runs

kill `pgrep -f gm-notify | grep -v %s`

which will kill all processes that contain gm-notify. For example this will kill an editor that has a file called gm-notify open (e.g. "vim gm-notify").

My suggestion would be to remove "-f" from pgrep and maybe add a second line for killing gm-notify-config if that was the intended purpose of using pgrep with "-f".
