I just tried with today's build (CHIRP next-20230122) and it popped up for me (Windows 10 Pro). I don't have a RadioReference account so I can't proceed any further.

UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xa7 in position 1: invalid start byte

It's related to the new (and important) effort to store passwords in something slightly less dicey than plaintext. But for anyone (most users I expect) who have their passwords already stored plaintext, it will not launch the query dialog. Just as proof of confirmation, config.py lines 82 onwards below; this works for me...

            try:
                return encoded
                #return base64.b64decode(encoded.encode()).decode()
            except binascii.Error:
                # Likely not stored encoded, return as-is
                return encoded

Yeah, I'll have a look and see if I can repro.

Mark, can you look in your chirp.config to see if yours is obfuscated? I'm wondering if your password happens to be valid base64, which is being decoded into binary... that seems like a dumb oversight on my part!

It's plaintext in the chirp conf; and the password IS valid base64 :)

Okay, yeah, that was dumb of me. I'll cook something up. It'll have to break someone, unfortunately :(
