with version 1.0.7, the "Verify database" does not find Peder's high age
(101 years) anymore, even though highest age is set to 90 years in the
dialog. I haven't tried to verify my database for a while, so I'm not
sure when it stopped working. It now finds eight warnings, while I
earlier seem to remember it was at least 20, probably more.
Is this just me? :)
