There's one little "problem" that I've noticed in Password Agent: After a few minutes of inactivity (in the program), the window/open file will be locked, in case the user leaves the computer and forgets to prevent access to the file himself. This is a good thing, BUT: it's easily circumvented in many cases. If you use Alt+Tab or WinKey+Tab to browse open programs, a "snapshot" of the windows will be displayed. This "snapshot" is not necessarily what the window looks like right now, so even if Password Agent has locked the file, this browsing method may very well show the open file. I'm seeing this in Windows 7, maybe this is the only version with this problem. Would it be possible to prevent this?

I think this is not serious issue -- the image is very small and usually it is good idea to have password column masked, so no information is actually visible.

However, in the next version I'll try to make it even better by showing nothing if file is locked.
