HOWEVER, if you select "use a key file for encrypting passwords/passphrases", then you only need to enter the master password ONCE and it will encrypt that and store it so you don't have to enter it again.

That's a show-stopper, as far as I'm concerned.
Offering the option to encrypt the saved passwords with a master
password is a good idea. Making the use of a master password compulsory
may be acceptable, provide it's done in a user-friendly way. But
requiring the use of a password that cannot be changed without the loss
of stored data is completely unacceptable. If I was in a situation where
a master password would actually be useful to me (eg, if other people
had access to my stored passwords and I needed to protect them), then if
the master password ever became known to other people I'd have to choose
between maintaining my security or keeping my stored data. Which is just
Anyway, I've solved the problem for now by downgrading to version 1.03,
which I'll stick with until the current version gives more control over
the master password option.
