The problem is with either libselinux' selinux_binary_policy_path(), or with the
usage of that function in seinfo.
Fixed in the upstream version, but am not sure we will put them in U3.
Adding to blocker bug 185483 and adding to IBM group per request of John Jarvis.
Mistakenly added to IBM group, removed.
