#980 Unable to create intermediate backup in Password Safe 3.26

V3 (197)

[submitted by proxy]
I believe I have observed a new bug in Password Safe 3.26. Here's how to reproduce the bug:
1. Open a database (it can be an existing one or a new, blank database).
2. Create a backup (Manage - Make Backup).
3. Try to do anything that would result in an intermediate backup being created (add an entry, edit one, etc.).
4. The following error message will appear, "Unable to create intermediate backup."

Not present in: Password Safe 3.25 (4042)
Present in: Password Safe 3.26 (4333)
Operating systems tested: Windows XP Pro SP3 and Windows Vista Enterprise SP2

I have read some of the threads in the forum about people getting this same error message due to problems with filesystem rights. I believe this is a different case because this problem does not occur in version 3.25. Nevertheless, I tried giving my user administrator rights but still get the error message.

Thank you for producing such a fabulous program!
