#1093 Problems on Win8


PW Safe ver 3.30 appears unstable on Win8 Pro. Observed problems are:
1. When typing the name for an entry several items are hilighted, it is not obvious which one is being selected.
2. Every few days a database corruption issue is flagged, e.g., too-large entry in a field
3. The password entered in the clipboard is for the wrong entry occasionally

All of these are serious issues with data integrity. This is the first time I have noticed these. I have been happliy using PW Safe on dozens of machines since it was first announced by Bruce Schneier.

    Very odd. My short test on a Windows 8 VM didn't uncover any problems. Also, no other users have reported them, and I know that there are other users of PasswordSafe under Windows 8.

    Could it be a problem with the PC, e.g., bad disk or memory?

    I have the same #3-problem as Gordon on my Windows 8.1. Very often when I double-click on an entry or do rmb-> 'Copy password to clipboard' I get an empty string when I want to paste the password. It is very random: trying it again may copy it correctly, or it may not work for 5 more times until it eventually does.
