Bug Description

Apps are now gettings apparmor denials for gsettings, though I'm not sure why and it doesn't seem to affect apps:

Oct 6 22:01:57 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [ 265.345968] type=1400 audit(1412632917.973:81): apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" profile="com.ubuntu.weather_weather_1.1.374" name="/run/user/32011/dconf/user" pid=4222 comm="qmlscene" requested_mask="wrc" denied_mask="wrc" fsuid=32011 ouid=32011
Oct 6 22:01:58 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [ 265.366561] type=1400 audit(1412632918.003:82): apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" profile="com.ubuntu.weather_weather_1.1.374" name="/home/phablet/.config/dconf/user" pid=4222 comm="qmlscene" requested_mask="r" denied_mask="r" fsuid=32011 ouid=32011

Since we are all well aware that apps should not be using gsettings, and it is so late in the cycle and these denials will confuse people, I will add an apparmor-easyprof-ubuntu task to silence these. However, this should be fixed since something is clearly not right....
