Sorry, can't really send the database files, obviously.

Here is the error message instead.

```

It might be advisable to try a synthetic test using two new databases
with some dummy entries in them, to see if it's a general problem with
database merging or if there's something specifically about the
databases you're trying to merge that's not being accepted.

Keepassxc seems crashy; I tried creating a new database and it was
crashing randomly, without any error output.

Strange, I use keepassxc regularly for a long time now and I've never
seen it crash. Though I don't do complex stuff such as merging
databases, just retrieval of users and passwords and creation of new
entries.

I also use it everyday, but I simply open an existing (dated) database
and edit entries to it/use it. It seems to crash often when creating
new databases for me.

I just tested Guix's Keepassxc v2.7.1 at Guix revision
01596f40a994a2bb39dde5867ca66e9f7e9e67e0 for merging newly created
databases (KDBX4) with and without conflicts in entries.

I experienced no crashes. Unless keepassxc or its dependencies changed
by the time I tested it, I think that something else might be
interacting.

Might very well be an upstream bug, I'll try to build it with debug
symbols and see if I can reproduce it with the latest Guix commit.
