Description of problem:
When tying to move files to an smb share I was getting an error of
permission denied. The fix turned out to be adding the line "allow
user_home_t cifs_t:filesystem associate;" below the line "allow cifs_t
cifs_t:filesystem associate;" in
/etc/selinux/targeted/src/policy/types then doing a make load && make

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed Fedora core 3
2. Mount a share in a user's home directory
3. Attempt to move files to that share

This should be fixed in selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.66
