WinXP V5.1 SP3

When an entry is open for viewing/editing the workspace does not lock after the inactivity timeout.

I tend to store a series of notes about each account in the KeePass entry, so I tend to view (open) each entry I want to use before I copy/paste the username/password. KeePass does not lock after the inactivity timeout when any entry is open. Workspace lock works fine otherwise.

    This is not a bug, it is by design.

    You never need to open/edit an entry to copy data. Everything can be accessed by double click, right click, drag n drop or Global Auto-Type.

    cheers, Paul
