shutter asks to "Authorize with Imgur" for each upload to account Imgur OAuth

Bug Description

Every time I upload a screenshot to my imgur account, using shutter account "Imgur OAuth", shutter asks again to "Authorize with Imgur".

I logged in to my imgur account, and I can see that shutter is already authorized, since the first time I went through the OAuth authorization workflow:

but shutter doesn't seem to keep the OAuth information, and keeps asking to re-authorize before each upload.

It doesn't matter if the uploads are done within the same shutter session, or if shutter is closed between uploads: it repeats the authorization process for each upload.

I thought it might be useful to attach my shutter settings. I created profile "default", so I'm attaching ~/.shutter/profiles/default.xml.
