2.1.0b8 GUI shows Keychain access error even though the backup completes successfully

saspus     Feb 6 1:50AM 2018 GUI

Duplicacy configured as follows:

        "name": "sftpds01",
        "id": "alex-imac",
        "storage": "sftp://alex@DS01//Backups/duplicacy/",
        "encrypted": true,
        "no_backup": false,
        "no_restore": false,
        "no_save_password": false,
        "keys": {

There are no errors in the backup session log:

Backup successfully completes, however after that the popup appears saying:

[22:47:36] /Users/alex Backup operation returned an error:
2018-02-05 22:46:09.426 duplicacy_osx_x64_2.1.0[21640:1342545] Keychain Get: Error Code: -25300
2018-02-05 22:46:09.427 duplicacy_osx_x64_2.1.0[21640:1342545] Keychain Get: Error Code: -25300

The keychain contains item "duplicacy" with account name "sftpds01_password" and ACL is set to allow access for duplicacy_osx_x64_2.1.0, "Confirm before allowing access" is ON and "Ask for Keychain password" is OFF

The application does not ask for the permission to access keychain (it only asked once) and instead reports errors, while still completing backup successfully.

This is because the GUI version treats any stderr output from the CLI version as an error, which is right. In this case, the CLI version wanted to check the Keychain to see if an ssh password is provided; it printed out an error to stderr when it couldn't find it but continues to use key-based login.

I'll fix it in the next beta version which should be available later today.
