How can I get cyberduck to foget a password. It seems that everytime I change it at the root and then type it in through cyberduck is remembering the silly thing.

I am using Cyberduck 4.1.3 (9045) on a windows xp machine.

I should say... everytime I change the password on the server I use... cyberduck then prompts for the new password... and that is the last time it will prompt. Is there a way to make it forget?

Never mind. But I have a thought...

The cure SEEMS to be to uncheck the use "Keychain" function.
The feature is kind of handy but could lead to a security issue if the user doesn't test. A kind of catch 22...

On Windows, passwords are encrypted using your login credentials and stored in the user.config file if you check Save in Keychain.
