Where did you find this message? I don't see it dmesg or /var/log/messages.
I could not duplicate this issue. When trying to find out why/when it was
happening I stumbled apon the reason why I did not always see it.
Turns out tat this was fixed with selinux-policy update, On the machine I had
seen this issue on was using an older verion of selinux-policy, it was using the
one that shipped with RHEL5 GA. When I updated the policy it worked as expected.
