SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver "execute" access on

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by gnome-screensav. It is not expected that this
access is required by gnome-screensav 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.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2010-11-03 11:30:28 EDT
any idea what's going on? 

Also look at #647588, #646620 bugs.
