The SELinux error

Description of problem:
SELinux gave me the above message with this suggested action in the details.
"Turn on full auditing
# auditctl -w /etc/shadow -p w
Try to recreate AVC. Then execute
# ausearch -m avc -ts recent
If you see PATH record check ownership/permissions on file, and fix it,
otherwise report as a bugzilla."

I followed the suggested steps with this result.
"[root@eagle lib]# auditctl -w /etc/shadow -p w
[root@eagle lib]# ausearch -m avc -ts recent
<no matches>"

Additional info:

My system is running with SELinux in permissive mode, and is daily updated.  This error has appeared many times in the past several days. I have to keep clearing the alerts.
