Description of problem:
/var/lib/nxsserver is the home directory for user 'nx' (created automatically by
the freenx rpm).

I am wondering whether /var/lib/nxerver/.ssh (which is a critical directory for
nx to work) should then have security context system_u:object_r:user_home_ssh_t
(or whatever the new unconfined version is). The current selinux context is

Any insight into whether this should be corrected?

I know that it is really annoying to you constantly report bugs for nxserver.
But I didn't have sufficient permissions to commit my patch for update. Feel
free to use my packages which fixes your particular problem.
Update will be publicly available as selinux-policy-3.0.8-77 .

Thank you for understanding.

Josef don't worry I'm NOT at all annoyed -- I truly appreciate all the work you
and the entire Redhat team does. I was merely asking because it seemed like you
had fixed it but it was not appearing in either updates or testing -- so I
wanted to make sure that this was not an inadvertent oversight or that I was
doing something wrong.

So again, THANKS SO MUCH for the responsiveness and I am perfectly happy despite
the occasional frustration we all experience while living on the cutting edge :)
