Description Vincent Danen 2013-03-12 17:46:40 EDT
It was reported [1] that Almanah does not encrypt its database when it closes, due to GApplication no longer using the quit_main_loop() event since GIO 2.32.  This will keep the database unencrypted when it should be encrypted.  The upstream bug report has a patch attached which corrects the issue.
