I keep getting a window opening up asking “You need a password to unlock the secret key for user: “Roy Isbell [email blocked]”, ID D0D401EE, (main key ID 16F621A047BE7AF3)”

I keep entering the password (passphrase) but it is not accepting the passphrase, even though I have confirmed that it is the correct passphrase.

I am not able to cancel the window.

Expected
I was not expecting this at all.

    Hi Roy,

    we are very sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with the latest version of GPG Suite.
    We believe this problem is triggered if a user has a custom GnuPG version installed along side of our MacGPG. From the debug log I can tell that that is the case for you.

    Could you please download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build and see if it solves your problem. That page also has sig and SHA256 to verify the download.

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet - bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test.
