userhelper fails to set exec context in strict policy
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:13 EST
Description of problem:
When computing the context under which the privileged application should be run,
userhelper reads the originating context from a static file instead of using the
context from which it was invoked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in as root with MCS strict policy
2. Attempt to run authconfig (5.0.1-1)
3. Observe error -- the original context which is logged as part of the failure
is not the context in which you're executing.
No output, error logged.
authconfig should run.

a patch which is NOT the right fix
Dan, do you have any idea how to fix it better ?
Close for lack use usermode should probably not be used in strict policy
