Are you saying you meant to roll back in the official 5.1.4 release,
or that you did it locally for yourself? I downloaded and installed
the official 5.1.4 release for macOS, and it was bundled with
ngspice-30, not 26.

Why include ngspice-30 if it's broken? I don't know if the bug is in
ngspice or KiCad, but as long as it's not fixed there's no reason to
use ngspice-30 since it's unusable for macOS users, IMHO.
