The lock file is not taken into account when on
the "Safe Combination Entry Window" and you open
another database other then the default.
It will not take into account the password lock file and
when you exit it will delete the other users password
Steps to reproduce.
Users must be using older versions of PWDSafe.exe so
presistent settings are already in the registry.
User 1 opens password.dat on network share and enters
correct key combination (lock file created and users and
passwords show up)
Runs 2.08 and usually works DBpasswords.dat. But now
wants to open password.dat that User 1 just opened.
User 2 opens password.dat and enters key combination.
(passwords and users show up, lock file remains,
note:no alert shows up saying it can be only used for
User 2 makes changes, saves and exits
(lock file gone)
User 1 makes changes, saves and exits
User 2 later goes in and files missing.
Note when the default database is set for both users
and they never change the DB the lock file mechanism
