16 September 2023 Emacs hangs saving .authinfo.gpg (workaround)

My Emacs (v29.1) was hanging when saving changes to .authinfo.gpg. Turns out, I ran into a known issue with a workaround. Downgrading gnupgp to a version older than 2.4.1 sorts things out.

I'm on macOS. Downgraded by downloading the 2.4.0 Homebrew formula at and installing with:

brew unlink gnupg
brew install ~/Downloads/gnupg.rb
