selinux log

I'm still seeing this error (selinux log attached) with
selinux-policy-3.0.8-24.fc8 and dnsmasq-2.40-1.fc8 as lanuched by
Comment 3 Mauricio Teixeira 2007-12-02 16:01:24 EST
Problem persists with selinux-policy-3.0.8-58.fc8

Fix is to apply workaround mentioned on #407901, so I guess both bugs are
directly related.
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2008-01-30 14:05:49 EST
Bulk closing a old selinux policy bugs that were in the modified state.  If the
bug is still not fixed.  Please reopen.
