Description Ian Weller 2009-04-18 15:24:33 EDT
Description of problem:
setroubleshoot reports: ``SELinux is preventing ck-get-x11-serv (consolekit_t) "search" xdm_var_run_t.''

SELinux denied access requested by ck-get-x11-serv. It is not expected that this access is required by ck-get-x11-serv 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.

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

Can be reproduced on first login from boot of a new user account. For example:

1) A creates user B
2) Log out A, log in B, no AVC denial
3) Reboot
4) Log in B, AVC denial as previously described
