Problems when encrypting to a group on MacGPG

Hello Everyone,

I'm trying to help someone configure MacGPG 2.0.22. I've defined a group
with multiple keys in it. But when I try to encrypt to the group to test
things, I get the following error:

"gpg: Ohhhh geeee: can't encode a 256 bit key in a 0 bit frame"

This happens after I tell the program to accept the final key in the
group as valid. But it doesn't seem to be related to a key since I've
deleted the final key and it still give me the error.

Any idea what might be causing this? Thanks!
