    On the windows version of gaim (both gaim 2.0.0beta3 and 2.0.0beta3.1) with gaim-encryption 3.0beta5 I get when starting gaim multiple dialog boxes with the error "Error (2) changing access mode for file: id.priv Cannot save key."

    This happened after gaim crashed and corrupted its config files, after which I restored them from a backup. I have already deleted the old id and id.priv files, but still get the errors.

      never mind. the old prefs.xml that I restored had references to a non-existing directory. after fixing it up, it works again.
