Default How to run keepassx in memory?

I am using keepassx-2 to store passwords. I store the keepassx file on a drive that is not usually mounted. When I need to access my passwords, I mount the drive, then open keepassx and open the password file. Then I unmount the drive leaving keepassx running with all the passwords in it.

In the past this has worked, but sometimes it does not work for reasons I do not understand. At the moment it won't let me unmount the drive (it says Device busy), until I close keepassx down, which is not the behavior I want.

So to my question, is there a setting that can control whether the drive is registered as being touched by the keepassx program?

There is amd(8), but IIRC it is designed for use with NFS.

You could use a ramdisk.
