@rwd2 - You probably want to post that as an issue upstream. I am just packaging this.

pwsafe creates random files in home folder

Steps to reproduce:

1) run pwsafe with any valid (or no ) arguments, for example 'pwsafe -ulpE test'

Expected result:

pwsafe runs and does not create any random files in the home folder

Actual esult:

pwsafe runs as it should, but eacht time it exits it creates a single file with a random name with question marks, containing binary data, in my home folder. These files seem like they don't serve any purpose and are the result of some bug.

I have been using pwsafe for years this problem started somewhere in 2020. Tested it with current version ( 20181220-1)

I recently got a pinebook pro and wanted to use pwsafe as I have been a long time user of pwsafe on my other Linux hosts. I wasn't able to get makepkg to build pwsafe for aarch64 without updating the config.guess script. I put together a branch that shows what I had to do in two commits: https://github.com/microe/aur-pwsafe/tree/update-config.guess
