Description of problem: gnome-keyring and SELinux don't like each other very much!!

Version-Release number of selected component (if

How reproducible:install gnome-keyring, logout and back in... and try and start
evolution (which has passwords stored in the keyring)

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

    SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon (xdm_t) "ptrace" to
    <Unknown> (unconfined_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon. It is not
    expected that this access is required by /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon 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.

Expected results: evolution running and accessing keyring without all this damn
SELinux noise.
