@SPRBRN: I had thought about suggesting a QR code, but not all would be able to read it.

Could you give examples of what exactly could happen? How common are these security holes?

comment Is there a value in using portable programs on a USB key?
It makes sense that there would various logs. I hadn't thought about that. But will there be any content from the file on the hard drive? So, if I for example edit a file located on a USB key with, for example portable notepad also located on the USB key, is it likely that any parts of the file makes it onto the hard drive?

comment Keepass Dictionary Attack Protection Strategy
From the Security page that you linked to, it sounds like it is all about increasing the time needed to try one key. Also, if the N and C is known, then I would guess that one could just precompile a list of list of keys. So if you want to attack several databases at the same time, you would only have to perform the hashing ones. In that sense the encryption with a random AES key works like a salt. But maybe someone with greater wisdom can say more.
