:SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-logind from using the 'signal' accesses on a process.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that systemd-logind should be allowed signal access on processes labeled devicekit_power_t 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 systemd-logind /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-11 09:55:06 EDT
systemd guys:

We are seeing systemd_logind sending signals to more and more processes?  Does it need to be able to send signals to all processes?  Signals to all dbus processes?
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-11 09:56:10 EDT
Added fix for F18, should be backported in F17
Comment 3 Julia 2012-06-11 10:03:58 EDT

I believe so.
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-11 10:08:53 EDT
All processes or just all dbus processes?
