gpg-agent crashing in El Capitan latest?

GPGServices (I think)

GPGMail (not loaded)
GPGServices: 1.10.1
MacGPG2: 2.0.28
GPGPreferences: 1.5

Since upgrading to the latest El Capitan (10.11.2) yesterday I am getting this crash repeatedly:
Dec 9 09:35:46 KillerRabbit com.apple.xpc.launchd1: Service exited with abnormal code: 2
Dec 9 09:35:46 KillerRabbit com.apple.xpc.launchd1: Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds.

To be completely honest, am not 100% sure if this happened only starting yesterday or has been ongoing, but I just noticed it after yesterday's update.

What did you expect instead

Not crashing?

    Hi Tom,

    does a restart change anything about this situation? What makes you think gpg-agent crashed? The console strings don't mention the gpg-agent. Maybe you can add some more detail?

    All the best,
    steve

    Not sure why the console messages got truncated in that view, but attached is output from the console log in screenshot version. A restart has no effect the agent just repeatedly "exits abnormally".

    Hi Tom,

    could you please open the following locations and check, if you see the org.gpgtools.macgpg2.gpg-agent file.

    1. /Library/LaunchAgents
    2. /Library/LaunchDaemons
    3. ~/Library/LaunchAgents

    Then please re-install GPG Suite 2015.09. After installing again check the locations and check if the file still exists.

    Once we know that, we'll take further steps to to solve this problem.

    Kind regards,
    steve

    That file is not in any of those locations (unless you mean the org.gpgtools.macgpg2.gpg-agent.plist file):

    illerRabbit:LaunchAgents tom$ cd /Library/LaunchAgents/
    KillerRabbit:LaunchAgents tom$ ls -lga org.gpg*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 556 Sep 23 13:46 org.gpgtools.Libmacgpg.xpc.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 478 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.gpgmail.enable-bundles.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 415 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.gpgmail.patch-uuid-user.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 493 Sep 23 12:00 org.gpgtools.gpgmail.updater.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 417 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.macgpg2.fix.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 415 Jul 31 2013 org.gpgtools.macgpg2.gpg-agent.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 552 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.macgpg2.shutdown-gpg-agent.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 482 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.macgpg2.updater.plist
    KillerRabbit:LaunchAgents tom$ cd /Library/LaunchDaemons/
    KillerRabbit:LaunchDaemons tom$ ls -lga org.gpg*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 410 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.gpgmail.patch-uuid.plist
    KillerRabbit:LaunchDaemons tom$ cd ~/Library/LaunchAgents/
    KillerRabbit:LaunchAgents tom$ ls -lga org.gpg*
    ls: org.gpg*: No such file or directory
    KillerRabbit:LaunchAgents tom$

    Did reinstall and still don’t see it (again, unless we are talking about the .plist in which case it’s there):

    KillerRabbit:LaunchAgents tom$ cd /Library/LaunchAgents/
    KillerRabbit:LaunchAgents tom$ ls -lga org.gpg*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 556 Sep 23 13:46 org.gpgtools.Libmacgpg.xpc.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 478 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.gpgmail.enable-bundles.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 415 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.gpgmail.patch-uuid-user.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 493 Sep 23 12:00 org.gpgtools.gpgmail.updater.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 417 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.macgpg2.fix.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 415 Jul 31 2013 org.gpgtools.macgpg2.gpg-agent.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 552 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.macgpg2.shutdown-gpg-agent.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 482 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.macgpg2.updater.plist
    KillerRabbit:LaunchAgents tom$ cd /Library/LaunchDaemons/
    KillerRabbit:LaunchDaemons tom$ ls -lga org.gpg*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 wheel 410 Mar 8 2015 org.gpgtools.gpgmail.patch-uuid.plist
    KillerRabbit:LaunchDaemons tom$ cd ~/Library/LaunchAgents/
    KillerRabbit:LaunchAgents tom$ ls -lga org.gpg*
    ls: org.gpg*: No such file or directory
    KillerRabbit:LaunchAgents tom$

    The reinstall did seem to help:

    Hi Tom,

    of course it is "org.gpgtools.macgpg2.gpg-agent.plist".
    Please delete that file and reboot your system.
    It's an old file, required for a previous version of MacGPG2, the installer should delete that file. I will look to fix this bug in the next release.

    Regards, Mento
