Confirmed, I can reproduce it with Emacs 26.
In Emacs 27.0.50, this is fixed already, by commit b3956d85c7 related to
bug#29575. Since this is part of a larger rewrite of secrets.el due to a
new feature, I cannot simply cherry-pick that commit from Emacs' master
branch to the emacs-26 branch. IIRC, the bug was uncovered while working
on the new feature, and it was fixed silently.
The appended patch seems to fix the problem in the emacs-26
branch. Could you, pls, check whether it works for you?
Best regards, Michael.
