    I am working on windows vista, Freemind 0.9.0.

    I was playing around with encrypted nodes, en- and decrypting them, folding and unfolding them, adding new nodes in the encrypted branch and so on.

    After that, it is impossible to save the file. Closing the mindmap and trying to reopen brings up the error:

    "Error while parsing file:freemind.main.XMLParseException: XML Parse Exception during parsing of a map element at line xxx: Unexpected end of data reached"

    The mindmap does not open in FreeMind anymore.

    This error is reproducable.

    The file is either corrupted (I could open it with an xml-editor and recover at least some of the data) or empty (0 k, all data lost).

    seems similar to bug#1672819

    According to ID 1672819 this bug has been fixed in 0.8.1.

    In 0.9.0 it still exists.

    Right, this could be gift from past.

    Could you give specific steps to reproduce?

    I didn't use encryption in freemind at all before, but now I've tried to play with it: created encrypted node w/o children, saved,reopened; added children, folded and unfolded, saved,reopened; deleted children, moved node,saved,reopened.

    No corruption occurred. All data is on right place.

    I'm using FreeMind RC15 with JRE6u26 under XP Pro SP3.
