When opening a KeePass database, and entering an incorrect master password, an error message is displayed. This error message is giving the full network path the database file, something I would prefer not be so readily shown to the end users. Can this message, or just the path, be hidden? I have hidden almost all other UI elements my users do not need through an extension.
