Attachment destroyed?

Hello,

today after booting my pc 1Password started and i got the update-message to version 4.1.0.530. So i read the release notes and saw the new attachment file limit of 5MB. (bad decision in my opinion)

I have at least one important bigger file (around 30MB). So i clicked "no", opened 1Password and wanted to save it somewhere else for backup.(in case i accidentally click update the next time)
Then i found my file in 1Password, but double clicking did nothing. I tried it with some other small attachments and there it worked. So i didn't get access to my important file. So i checked the size of the 1password keychain in my dropbox folder and it was only 12MB! -> probably too small to contain my file

Is my attachment lost? Got the file deleted by your software? I am also using 1Password on my iPhone, so maybe the new file size limit got "enforced" by the iPhone App?(just a random unlikely guess)

This seems like a serious problem. Is this some known bug? Files that are put in 1Password are there to be very secure. I don't really know how it can be reproduced. I am currently using Version 4.1.0.526. (Yes, i know 1Password is no backup for a file.. but i have a month old keychain backup with the same problem :( )

Other question: What happens with bigger files in 1Password, when i update to the newest version?

    No it is not. The attachment limit should only affect new attachments you're adding to your vault. It shouldn't affect your existing attachments.

    Nothing.
