If you have an old password file from before, it will ask you for a master
password but no password will work. That old file needs to be deleted
If you hit "cancel" when it asks you for the master password, then it won't
try to load it anymore.
Then after you enter your regular password, it will ask you for the master
At this point, you can pick a new password and it will clobber the old
If you cancel, it won't save anything.
