When the pwsafe window has been idle for a while, the vault is locked. That's good.
However, it is not possible to close the application without entering the password.

    This is by design: You're prompted for the password only if there are unsaved changes, or an entry edit window open, since the application needs this in order to save the changes before exiting.

    I beg to differ.

    On my Fedora 17 system I start PasswordSafe (linux) v0.92 (beta).

    I enter the password and it opens the main window.

    I do nothing.

    After 5 minutes (as controlled by the options) the main window
    disappears (is minimized). When I restore the window, I'm asked for the
    password and there's nothing else I can do. I have to enter the password
    before I can quit the application.

    Having a dormant application with a minimized window would not be a
    problem if a subsequent pwsafe command would restore this window. But it
    starts a new instance of pwsafe and then things become very problematic.
