I added a number of additional dives to my log over the weekend, and every
single attempt to save resulted in the "Authentication to cloud storage
failed" error. Checking https://cloud.subsurface-divelog.org/ strongly
implied that the data was saved successfully, but since I couldn't be sure
that all of the details were included (as the website doesn't display
everything) I would then followup with *Save to cloud storage*... a minimum
of 2 attempts was required in each case, before I was able to get a "clean"
save. The network was solid and fast, and no other applications were
encountering any issues.

I don't mean to be a downer (and I fully understand that I'm not owed
anything here), but it seems to me that this bug should be worth a point
release. I've recommended Subsurface to several people, and the "ignore any
save errors... it's a known issue, and likely - but not definitively - a
false alarm" discussion gets awkward rather quickly.
