Description of problem:

In another bug #207046, I found a segfault in a call to restorecon in
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.  The problem seems to be that if you call restorecon with
a nonexistant file, it segfaults.  This ought to be handled more gracefully.

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

Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
