It must've been fixed because I used a later version of 1.4 with it
for a few months at some point and I must've entered a wrong
passphrase at some point.  I believe it was when I was transitioning
from my previous key to this current one and I definitely would've
encountered passphrase muscle memory issues then.  I do recall some
annoyances, but no infinite loops or recursion.
