Fails to mount encrypted DMG, instead selects parent disk as destination

I have found what I think is a repeatable bug.

1. Connect an external drive that contains a DMG that you wish to backup to.
2. Launch SuperDuper 2.6.1
3. SD comes up with the "Can't find destination drive..." message
4. SD then auto-selects the parent drive as the destination volume.

If you then hit "Copy" you end up backing up your files along side the DMG, rather than to the DMG itself.

If you quit and relaunch SD, the 2nd launch it automatically mounts the DMG and then everything is fine.

I'm not sure what the issue is -- why does SD fail to mount the DMG on the first launch? Perhaps its a timing issue? In my case, the DMG is encrypted and my keychain is locked.

But clearly, choosing the wrong destination drive in the "to:" popup seems like a UI bug.
