2.2.9 has a serious bug, do not use it. Use 2.2.8 or 2.2.10 instead, or upgrade to a current version (3.1.1).
The bug you have is the database that fails to initialize. Restart and try again.

===================

Trying to import..
Tried first to open existing fil, but failed.

Kreated the file in ver. 2.2.8-0.SVN (test- mashine)
Will now use the "database" on my daily used WS (ver. 2.2.9-1).
Both mashines run Mandriva Free 2008.1
