Corrupt Databases

Some people reported that after updating, their database vanished. I could not work out what could possibly be the cause as there is no code in Password Safe that does this without confirmation from the user.

I recently spotted this in my log file.

I can only assume that the default Android behaviour for corrupt databases is now to just delete them silently.

Of course this is not what I want. I would prefer to let my users know that their database is corrupt. The next update (3.4.4) will replace the default error handler with my own handler that notifies the user of corruption.
