Describe the issue

I am able to unlock, stake, and send qtum from my wallet on a linux computer. When I export the wallet.dat file to my windows computer, I am unable to unencrypt the wallet with the same password. I am able to see the correct account balances and transactions.

Can you reliably reproduce the issue? Yes

If so, please list the steps to reproduce below:

  1. Back up wallet on Ubuntu computer
  2. Replace wallet.dat file on windows computer with the Ubuntu wallet.dat file
  3. Start qtum on windows computer, unable to unencrypt wallet with same password

Expected behaviour

I expect to be able to unlock the same wallet on my windows computer to make transactions.

Actual behaviour

I am able to unlock the wallet on my linux (origin) computer but not on my windows computer.
