Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
selinux-policy  	 2.4.6  	 248.el5  	 noarch 

How reproducible:

Not 100%.  It happens at apparently random places within our tests.  See rhts jobs 67886, 67883 and 67872 for examples.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-06-23 16:58:52 EDT
This is not an SELinux bug but a long standing error with logwatch and some other tools.
