Description Winston Li 2008-08-20 23:21:49 EDT
Description of problem:
chcat won't translate the categories when user is in multiple categories.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

# uname -r

# sestatus 
SELinux status:                 enabled
SELinuxfs mount:                /selinux
Current mode:                   enforcing
Mode from config file:          enforcing
Policy version:                 21
Policy from config file:        targeted

# rpm -qf /usr/bin/chcat

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.vi /etc/selinux/targeted/setrans.conf
add two categories as below:

restarting mcstrans service:
/etc/init.d/mcstrans restart

2. Assign one category to testuser:
#chcat -l -- +Marketing testuser
#chcat -L -l testuser
testuser: Marketing

3. Assign another category to testuser and review it:
#chcat -l -- +Finance testuser
#chcat -L -l testuser
testuser: s0:c0,c1

Actual results:
#chcat -L -l testuser
testuser: s0:c0,c1

Expected results:
# chcat -L -l testuser
testuser: Marketing,Finance

It works fine in RHEL5 GA with policycoreutils-1.33.12-3.el5
