See also #536 human readable error message when failing on secret key export.

macOS 12.2.1, 12.6
✓ GPG Suite 2021.2 Single error message x GPG Suite 2022.1 Double error message
x GPG Suite 3132n Double error message

Double Error message not shown on macOS 13.


After entering the wrong password on trying to export a secret key 6 times (pinentry does the 3 attempts thing and shows up twice) two error messages are shown.


Only show error message once.

And lets make the error message human readable:

Title: Key export failed!
Message: The following key could not be exported since no correct passphrase was entered:
Name, E-Mail
