GPGServices: Unable to decrypt message in TextEdit via Services menu in Mac

I'm using Version 1.4.2 (1403) for Mac.

Something has changed because I have encrypted messages that cannot be decrypted. I paste the code into TextEdit, select and right click, choose decrypt to new window via the services menu. This used to work like a charm but now I get an error that it can't decrypt. If I save the message as a text file on the Desktop and decrypt it that way, it works. I don't see what the difference would be and my keys are in the keychain.

Any ideas?
