Comment (by dharris):

 Wow... I hadn't realized that accounts.xml has the passwords in cleartext.
 You're right, if the passwords aren't encrypted then the master password
 doesn't help much. Anybody with admin rights on the machine could see the
 passwords just by browsing through the file system.
