[MlMt] Keychain weirdness

You’ve probably tried this already but JIC, I recommend close\re-open 

Yeah, I know it sounds strange but I’ve had issues where some 
apps\services that need Keychain just stopped working.  This has 
happened a lot with Apple Messages where it would work fine for several 
days and then all of the sudden, no IMs sent or received and no error 
message given.  After yanking what little hair I did have, I finally 
discovered that closing\re-opening Keychain did the trick…
