How reproducible: every time

I had an idea that selinux might be involved. I set it to 'Disabled' and the bug
no longer happens. Any ideas how to debug further? I used ls -Z and the
synaptics .o was similar to the other ones. Which log should give more details
of the problem?
No longer able to reproduce this bug in FC5t3. Same versions of synaptics and
xorg-x11-drivers so I'm not sure what has been fixed. Thanks!
