Yes, it was functional. AFAIK akonadi uses my OS credentials, so it doesn't/
shouldn't need any creds that could be stored in that file.

I don't know much about AppArmor either. I understand the general concept, but 
usually I'm mostly 'annoyed' by the pop-ups as I don't (really) know what to 
do about it and consequently just click them away.
This issue about accessing ~/.pgpass is probably the first instance that I 
practically see the advantage of AppArmor. It's possibly useful to figure out 
whether this is a bug in akonadi or not.
