I can reproduce this on my other F8 machine (i686 athlon arch) that has the same
versions of packages.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2008-01-22 09:32:56 EST
restorecon /etc/services

Some rpm in it post install script is editing the /etc/services file in /tmp and
then mv'ing it to /etc.  THis is causing the labels to be wrong.  Running
restorecon on the file will fix.  If you know which rpm is causing the problem,
open an bugzilla on it to tell them to run restorecon when they are done.

restorecond could be used to watch this file, in the future.

Marking this as notabug since this is not a bug with policy but a bug with some
other package.
