Deleting all keys at once does not work

GPG Keychain

Mac OS X: 10.7.5 (11G63)
GPGPreferences: 1.0.2 (b95d16b), 688n
GPGServices: 1.9.2 (fa4d9eb), 689n
GPG Keychain: 1.2a4 (091b89e), 917n
GPGMail: 2.1 (f976416), 745n
MacGPG2: 2.0.26 (c30fa6e), 671n

I discovered this when exporting and reimporting all keys to try to fix another problem. If I select all keys in GPG Keychain, click Delete, then click "Delete secret and public keys", it only deletes my keys and leaves the rest that were selected. If I then again select all keys, click "Delete", then click "Delete keys", it does delete the rest of the keys.

Please describe what you did expect instead

I expected all of the selected keys to be deleted.

If you remember, please describe the steps leading up to the problem.

  1. Select all keys including your key.
  2. Click the Delete icon.
  3. Click "Delete secret and public keys"
  4. Only your key is deleted.
  5. Select all keys again
  6. Click the Delete icon.
  7. All the selected keys are deleted.

    Hi cosmic,

    this issue has been fixed and the fix is already included in GPG Suite beta 3.

    All the best,
