:SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/tmpwatch from 'getattr' accesses on the directory /tmp/pulse-PKdhtXMmr18n.
:*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************
:If you want to allow tmpwatch to have getattr access on the pulse-PKdhtXMmr18n directory
:Then you need to change the label on /tmp/pulse-PKdhtXMmr18n
:# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE '/tmp/pulse-PKdhtXMmr18n'
:where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: tmp_t, var_t, amavis_spool_t, user_home_dir_t, textrel_shlib_t, filesystem_type, device_t, locale_t, etc_t, file_t, proc_t, man_t, rpm_script_tmp_t, tmp_t, usr_t, var_t, winbind_var_run_t, security_t, etc_t, cert_t, default_t, tmpfile, rpm_log_t, var_t, var_log_t, cfengine_var_lib_t, var_run_t, sssd_public_t, abrt_var_run_t, var_run_t, sandbox_file_t, abrt_var_run_t, likewise_var_lib_t, sysctl_crypto_t, kismet_log_t, rpm_var_cache_t, krb5_conf_t, var_spool_t, httpd_cache_t, var_log_t, var_lib_t, user_home_type, cfengine_var_lib_t, setrans_var_run_t, file_type, httpd_sys_rw_content_t, var_lib_t, var_run_t, device_t, print_spool_t, samba_var_t, sysctl_t, etc_t, abrt_t, bin_t, samba_etc_t, proc_t, home_root_t, avahi_var_run_t, lib_t, mnt_t, sysfs_t, nscd_var_run_t, nslcd_var_run_t, tmpreaper_t, root_t, smbd_var_run_t, sssd_var_lib_t, tmp_t, usr_t, var_t, net_conf_t, cpu_online_t, krb5_host_rcache_t, var_t, var_t, var_run_t, var_run_t, nscd_var_run_t, pcscd_var_run_t. 
:Then execute: 
:restorecon -v '/tmp/pulse-PKdhtXMmr18n'
:*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that tmpwatch should be allowed getattr access on the pulse-PKdhtXMmr18n directory 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 tmpwatch /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-29 18:25:09 EDT
This looks like you had some files with labels that the kernel no longer understands.

rm -rf /tmp/pulse-PKdhtXMmr18

If you believe you no longer need these.

chcon -t user_tmp_t /tmp/pulse-PKdhtXMmr18 -r

If you want them around for a while, I have no idea how this content got there.
Comment 2 James 2012-07-02 10:48:56 EDT
I see this message as well about once a day. Fedora 17 + XFCE.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2012-07-18 16:23:16 EDT
What does this output

getfattr -n security.selinux /tmp/pulse-*
Comment 4 Michael B. 2012-08-05 13:16:42 EDT
I'm having a similar problem, except that it's happening on the directory kdecache-root. I tried using the automatic bug reporting tool to make a new bug report, but it kept telling me it was a dupe of this one. It happens all the time on both of my Fedora 17 + KDE computers. If this is indeed the same problem, I'd be happy to help you get the info you need to investigate it.
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2012-08-06 10:40:35 EDT
Michael just delete the directory you should not see this again.
Comment 6 Michael B. 2012-08-06 11:32:25 EDT
I already did on my main computer. I was more concerned about it affecting large numbers of Fedora KDE users.
Comment 7 Daniel Walsh 2012-08-06 13:29:54 EDT
This is a one time thing, which should be fixed by the latest policy update.  Basically what happened is we removed a label for content created by firstboot during install.  This content in /tmp became unlabeled_t and tmpwatch was not able to look at it.  The latest policy has an "Alias" for the label we removed so if a users is fully up2date, this problem will cease to happen.
