Dis-allowing multiple instances (ubuntu-0.7)

    Thank you for working on the Linux version of your nice app. I use a launcher
    button for this, and often don't realize that I've already opened a password
    safe. The Java version that I was using earlier also has this issue and, for
    that, I hacked up a script to prevent multiple instances.

    As I'm starting finally to use your beta version, I notice this has the same
    issue -- deselecting the "Allow multiple instances" is not recognized. However
    a few mods to the earlier script solves this here as well, and it's now
    available on my website at

    This has only been tested on Ubuntu 10.04. It also includes support for a fix
    to the Ubuntu 10.04 library dependency issue for those who need it, which
    resolves the following error message.

    pwsafe: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.14' not found (required
    by pwsafe)

    Thanks for the link to the script - nice work!

    Could you submit a bug report as to "Allow multiple instances" not working
    under Linux? This will help us get a fix out eventually.



    PS - you might want to check out the 'pgrep' command instead of 'ps | grep |
    grep -v'...
