dbus search error for SELinux
Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2007-12-06 00:05:24 EST
Please remember to file SELinux policy problems against SELinux.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-12-06 10:35:05 EST
Well actually I believe this is a problem of a leaked file descriptor and should
be filed against gdm.

I don't believe dbus needs access to gdm private data.
