Draft emails contain "Mail Attachment" and "encrypted" attachment - content is lost

Using GPGMail 2.6b2, I notice that sometimes I cannot restore a draft I was working on and it seems the entire thing is lost!
When I browse Drafts I see "This message has no content" and clicking them shows "Mail Attachment" and "encrypted" attachments. It seems something is wrong and it is unable to or unwilling to decrypt the messages.

Is there anything I can do to recover the content?

    Hi Jason,

    is this reproducible for all drafts you create?

    How many sec/pub keys do you see listed after following these steps?

    1. open GPG Keychain
    2. tick option to "Show secret keys only" in the bottom right

    All the best,
