Audacity 2.1.3 won't open file from Finder context menu

Audacity 2.1.3 doesn't open files from Finder's context menu. Tested with macOS 10.12.6 and previous versions.

Just to be clear: the "context menu" in macOS is when you right-click a file in Finder, and select "Open with..." [Audacity] or select Audacity from the list of suggested apps.

Audacity will launch, but the selected file will not be loaded into the application.

This is a problem with Audacity 2.1.3 and perhaps some version(s) before it. But I know 100% that I could open files in Audacity directly from the Context menu in previous versions of Audacity.

I didn't find a thread about this problem. Does anyone know if there's a bug report on this issue, or should I file one?

I'm not on Mac, but I'm aware that there have been some fixes for file opening on macOS in the new version of Audacity that is due to be released soon.
The release will be announced on this forum, the main website, facebook, twitter and Google+
