Is anyone else seeing GBoard gesture typing breaking often?

My phone has Android 8.1 on, and I'm probably having to restart the app (usually the Messages app) at least once a week (I think it's been about three times this week though) because gesture typing inexplicably stops working and all that will work is normal typing (but without suggestions iirc).

- edit - GBoard + gesture typing has worked fine for me for years, just in recent weeks/months have I started to experience problems. If no-one else is, I might take an axe to GBoard's cache etc and see if that helps.

For me it's only happening with the Messages app (which admittedly is what I type in most, but when it happened with the Messages app I then switched to another and it worked in that).

@PixelSquish
Moto G5 in case there's any device similarity there?
