System continuously asks for the password to unlock the secret key. Option to store the password in the Keychain is set. Signing is failing too. Screen shot attached.

Expected
Error being intermittently generated that the xlc service is not working properly. I have rebooted the Mac and stopped/started Mail.

    Hi Vince,

    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.

    System asked for my password one more time. And then all appears to be well. Thank you very much for the quick turnaround. Your team does important work and I depend on you.
