Description Ivan Virgili 2007-11-25 15:17:23 EST
    SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/pam-keyring-tool (xdm_t) "ipc_lock" to
    <Unknown> (xdm_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/libexec/pam-keyring-tool. It is not
    expected that this access is required by /usr/libexec/pam-keyring-tool and
    this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the
    specific version or configuration of the application is causing it to
    require additional access.

Allowing Access
    You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see
    http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385 Or you can disable
    SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not
    recommended. Please file a http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi
    against this package.

You can allow this for now by executing 

# audit2allow -M mypol -i /var/log/audit/audit.log 
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.0.8-62.fc8
