#425 KeePassX stops working after attempting to autotype


1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 11.10
Release: 11.10

2) apt-cache policy keepassx

apt-cache policy firefox

3) What is expected to happen via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/keepassx/+bug/878977/+attachment/2868259/+files/example.kdb && keepassx example.kdb

password = example

is when one uses KeePassX in Firefox, go to website:

click Test my broadband speed now

and have a keepassx entry whose comment is:

Auto-Type-Window: Consumer Broadband Test *
Auto-Type: {TAB}example{TAB}{TAB}example{TAB}nn{TAB}11111{ENTER}
Auto-Type-Window: The National Broadband Plan: Connecting America *
Auto-Type: {TAB}example{TAB}{TAB}example{TAB}nn{TAB}11111{ENTER}

it autotypes when using keyboard combinations and no further problems occur.

4) What happens instead is keepassx does not autotype, and any future attempts to autotype against this entry or any other existing or newly created entires does not work.

Terminal output:
More than one 'Auto-Type:' key sequence found.
Allowed is only one per entry.

Multiple 'Auto-Type:' key sequence works in KeePass 1.21 -> http://downloads.sourceforge.net/keepass/KeePass-1.21-Setup.exe

WORKAROUND: Make two seperate entries, one for each window header.
WORKAROUND: Restart keepassx. This workaround does not allow me to enter in the desired autotype, but it recovers autotype for other websites and their entries.
