ComposeBackEnd Debug mode information leak.

Likely an easy fix for this one - I noticed the contents of my communication are being logged in /var/log/system.log with the GPGMail plugin installed. Some sort of debug mode:

Feb 8 11:29:42 Mail[1289]: -[ComposeBackEnd _saveThreadSaveContents:] | ComposeBackEnd+GPGMail.m[79] [DEBUG] Content: WebComposeMessageContents 0x7fb645fc9e80, plainText:

[ content omitted, of course ]

This is true regardless of whether or not the mail is marked as encrypted - but it does NOT log the content of communication when the optional tick-box for "encrypt drafts" is enabled.

Is there an easy toggle to disable this logging of message content / debug mode?

    Hi Scott,

    we're very aware of this issue and it will be fixed
    in the version we should release today.

    I apologize for any problems this may have caused.
    Also it's best to delete all your current /var/log/system.log and
    system.loggz files

    just wanted to let you know that we've just released a fix for this problem.
    You can get it if you activate "Download beta versions" in your -> Preferences -> GPGMail and click on Check Now.
