Display Filename on Password Error Dialog

When you try to open a file, if the password doesn't match, the error dialog does not say what file you are trying to open. At least that I can see.

Since I manage multiple files, I cannot tell if I have entered the wrong password, or I am not trying to open the file I intended (i.e. it is the last file I opened). Displaying the filename in the dialog would save the step of having to cancel and reselect the filename if I am trying to open the file I intended and just entered the wrong password.

Not a big deal...but hopefully, a simple change as well. Thanks...ctc

    Good catch. I hadn't noticed this but you are right. You got my vote, don't forget to add yours, @Chuck Collins .
    And as long as the programmer is in this module, another minor thing has always bothered me: if the first attempt at the password fails, the dialog (now sans filename) should select the incorrect password. This would put it in pending-delete mode, so the user could just type over it without having to backspace or delete it.

    This is still a good idea.
