[maemo-users] pwsafe.install error

The maemo version can read the files from version 2.16 of the MS Windows
(installed from the ".exe (32-bit Windows)" on the sourceforge page). And I
think that I tried changing something and it worked the other way also.
I didn't do any exporting/importing though, just used the same .dat file for
both versions.

Whew, long time sitting things out here.

But yes, it installs now.

Unfortunately it doesn't support V3 database format; and in fact the V2 
database I export now from PasswordSafe won't open either, so it's not 
useful.  Dunno what's wrong where, maybe PasswordSafe broke the export 
at some point, but anyway I'm stuck again.
