The problem I see with those is that they admit only one master
password. That means if a team has to share a list of passwords, they
all have to know the same master password for the password safe.

The real solution to me is something like "gpg", where each user has
their own private key and you can encrypt a file with several public
keys, so that any one of the keys can decrypt it. However, "gpg" works
better on a Unix console type of environment, I don't know of good
front-ends for it, specially on Windows. PGP is an option, it's
commercial now though, the freeware version is not available anymore.
