    Hi Albert,

    thanks for taking the time to report this problem.

    This issue has already been fixed. If you want to test the fix, please download our latest hotfix GPG Suite. That page also has Signature file and SHA256 to verify the download. Thanks for helping us test this fix.

    You may have to restart your mac after installing the hotfix for the fix to fully take effect.
