[Bug] PSD to> conversion loses Alpha channel

It would seem for some reason XnConvert is not detecting the Alpha channel in a PSD. When converted to another format, like TIFF, the alpha channel is missing. But, if I save out a TGA from Photoshop and then convert that with XnConvert, the Alpha channel is retained.

I've attached an example PSD file.

FYI: According to Photoshop CS2, this file has an alpha channel but no layers. Perhaps that's why XnConvert doesn't pick it up.

Sure, here you go.

Also I should mentioned that these are Photoshop CC 2017 files, maybe some 2016 ones. So perhaps something changed with PSD files recently that has broken PSD Alpha channel detection in xnconvert.
