#430 Mac OSx/Linux/Android file compatibility


A keepass.kdb created on linux x86_64 and opened on linux 32-bit KeepassX 0.4.3 as well as android KeepassDroid 1.9.9 fine, but fails to open with database corrupted or wrong password hash error on Mac OS X 10.6.8. Used Key Codes which seems to indicate unicode byte value of all characters in password same on both systems.

Very frustrating. Main feature was compatibility between systems. Any ideas ?

    Just created test.kdb on mac os x 0.4.3, copied to linux system, opened fine, added one entry, saved, then copied back to mac - mac now states hash test failed. Then copied mac .kdb file to linux and copied to new file and copied back to mac - opened. Then opened the test file on linux (ok) and then "saved as" - results in all but first 16 bytes changing (salt ?), and no longer opens on mac os x (hash test failed.

    OK, eliminating non-alphanumeric characters in master password allowed file to be opened on Mac OS X despite what "Key Codes" was saying - (but weakens password).
