Ah i see. Running 'git clone' as described on the website does
actually download the latest version.
That date is simply when the last major changes where made to the
manpage, not quark itself.
If you run 'git log' you'll see the date of the most recent (topmost)
change to the source code.

The bug still hasn't been fixed in the latest version.
I've attached a bug fix patch to this mail that you can use, but I'm not 100%
sure that this bug is responsible for your problem.
To apply the patch, simply drop the .diff file in your quark source
folder, then run
    git am quark-addr_cmp_fix-20230226.diff
and then rebuild & reinstall with
    make install
