Description of problem:
when running virt-manager of ssh/X11, dbus encounters an selinux avc and errors out, despite selinux being in permissive mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Set selinux=permissive, reboot, watch any attempt to run X11 over ssh.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login, run virt-manager
2. see window complaining that virt-manager can't talk to gconf
virt-manager --debug shows the following:
dbus_bus_get(): An SELinux policy
prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient
(rejected message had interface "org.freedesktop.DBus" member "Hello"
error name "(unset)" destination "org.freedesktop.DBus
virt-manager works of ssh/X11
setting selinux=disabled works fine, but I don't want to run in this mannner.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support
Still not workin'. We've just turned off selinux to get our stuff working, which is kind of heart-breaking but what else can we do?
Having some trouble working out why this is taking three years to fix. Am I missing something?
