SELinux is preventing /opt/google/talkplugin/GoogleTalkPlugin from 'getattr' accesses on the sock_file /dev/gpmctl.

That's from telepathy-gabble I guess

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that GoogleTalkPlugin should be allowed getattr access on the gpmctl sock_file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep GoogleTalkPlugi /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
