Tried to run Java password safe on a Mac OS X and the program would report that there is an error in the safe/password combination. I suspect this is related to the fact that I use accented (french) characters in my password.

    Hi Sylvain,

    thanks for your report. In a quick test I could create and reopen a safe with accent (simply an é) on linux. Could you check the following

    • change the password (on pc?) for something wothout accent and retry to open on mac
    • make a new safe on the mac with accent and try to open it on pc / with pc safe

    and report back?

    It would also be useful if you could provide a test safe with a password that does not work as an attachement.

    Cheers,
    Roxon
