Description Andrew Farris 2008-01-27 02:54:42 EST
SELinux is preventing dbus-daemon-lau(/lib/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper)
(system_dbusd_t) "execute" to <Unknown> (consolekit_exec_t).

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by
dbus-daemon-lau(/lib/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper). It is not expected that
this access is required by
dbus-daemon-lau(/lib/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper) 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.

Seen after making preference changes in various gnome apps, when opening /
closing apps, in particular banshee (the denial triggers once per debug warning
below I think):
