Description Matt Kinni 2012-10-15 00:10:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Hello.  I saw a post on Dan Walsh's blog <http://danwalsh.livejournal.com/41593.html> that showed how you can process many semanage commands in one transaction like so:

semanage -S targeted -i - << _EOF
boolean -m --on allow_polyinstantiation
boolean -m --on xguest_connect_network
boolean -m --on xguest_mount_media
boolean -m --on xguest_use_bluetooth

However, running this on my system outputs an error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/sbin/semanage", line 566, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/seobject.py", line 285, in finish
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/seobject.py", line 274, in commit
    semanage_set_reload(self.sh, self.reload)
TypeError: in method 'semanage_set_reload', argument 2 of type 'int'

None of the commands end up being processed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run the example code above
Actual results:
semange explodes

Expected results:
works as intended

Additional info:
I'm not sure how to debug this further.  Let me know if you need anything else
