PasswordSafe Linux v0.3 3839 beta on Linux Mint 9

Set security options to lock on minimise (minimize) & on workstation lock.
Then either:
A) Minimise using minimise button, or close button to minimise to system tray, then restore & password is not asked for.
B) Lock screen, then unlock - PasswordSafe is still open & does not require password to access.

Note, lock after 10 minutes idle setting does work okay.

    I"ve fixed (A). Could you please open a separate tracker for (B)?

    I don't have a fix for (B) yet, since the underlying framework (wxWidgets) doesn't provide workstation lock notifications. I only know how to implement it for Windows, where it matters the least. But having an open tracker might still help track the issue.
