#13 major bugs in multi-file mode


Version JPWS 0-6-0 RC1 (

I have found some nasty bugs but I am not yet able to reproduce them. Regardless, I consider them serious, so I believe it is best to report my initial observations. These bugs seem to occur in multi-file mode with 2 open password files (e.g. a.psafe3, b.psafe3):

1) the application locks, prompting for the b.psafe3 password. Each time I enter the password correctly and click "OK", the prompt re-appears immediately. If I click "Cancel", the application unlocks.
2) following #1, I close both files. However, if I re-open a.psafe3, it succeeds WITHOUT prompting for a password!

I will provide more information as I discover it.

    Thanks for the notice!

    At least for no. 2) I can say that this is expected behaviour. The program holds a loose cache for databases which allows key-free reopening of a closed database for a time of 10-15 seconds after closing. This looks acceptable to me from a security standpoint.

    As for no. 1) I'd be very interested to gain knowledge how to reproduce it.

    Sometimes JVM gets corrupted by some error of unknown origin and shows typical failures like this.

    I hope this doesn't reappear in 0-6-0 RC3. If the problem persists, please reopen this bug report! Thank you.

    Report set to "Pending".
