It strikes me that this is actually a bad thing for pgadmin3 to be doing. It should use its own file, not the deafult location, at least if the libpq version is >= 8.1. We provided the PGPASSFILE environment setting just so programs like this could use alternative locations for the pgpass file. Otherwise, it seems to me we are violating the POLS, as in the case of this user who not unnaturally thought he had found a major security hole.
