Description of problem:
Booting today with audit-1.6.4-1.fc9, auditd failed to start up:

Dec 30 11:05:34 localhost auditd: /var/log/audit/audit.log permissions should be
Dec 30 11:05:34 localhost auditd: The audit daemon is exiting.
Dec 30 11:05:34 localhost kernel: audit(1199041534.187:4):
audit_backlog_limit=320 old=64 by auid=4294967295
subj=system_u:system_r:auditctl_t:s0 res=1
Dec 30 11:05:34 localhost kernel: audit(1199041534.187:5):
audit_backlog_limit=320 old=64 by auid=4294967295 res=1

/var/log/audit/audit.log's mode was 600.

Changing the mode to 640 makes it work, but is this test right?  Should the mode
be changed in the post install script?

Should be fixed in audit-1.6.4-3. I forgot to change the config parser to allow
both 0600 and 0640 for the logs. Thanks for reporting the bug.
