Reporter, do you have SELinux enforcing (/usr/sbin/getenforce would tell you)? Do you see any SELinux complaints (the yellow star in the status bar)?

I cannot say if I see anything in the status bar, because an other bug switch off my screen when I close the lid and I do not know how to switch it on again is there any log file I can read?
The bug is fixed.
So that's a Selinux problem.
I'll switch off selinux as a workaround until fixed. Thank you very much.
This bug seems to be related to
