The problem is the /dev/log has the wrong security context on it.

Are you running with /dev/ on tmpfs_t?

Do a restorecon /dev/log and the problem should go away.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2004-09-15 11:30:33 EDT
Is this still happening with the current policy?
Comment 4 John Reiser 2004-09-15 12:59:11 EDT
selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.12-1 is now OK: these lines are no longer
produced, in neither fc3t1 nor fc3t2pre (re0908.0).  I see no
complaints when booting the latest up2date of these two systems.
