Fix for Keepass crashing under Linux

If you want to try out the free password management solution KeePass under Linux and experience crashes every time you press the Windows key, there is an easy fix:

Edit /usr/bin/keepass2 and change the line

/usr/bin/cli /usr/lib/keepass2/KeePass.exe


/usr/bin/cli --verify-all /usr/lib/keepass2/KeePass.exe

The developers of Keepass have acknowledged the problem, but sadly they can't do anything about it, since it is a bug in Mono and not in Keepass: https://sourceforge.net/p/keepass/bugs/1545
