:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/evince-thumbnailer from 'create' accesses on the file 22b7863cce3425b0bed65f295c8925c5.png.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that evince-thumbnailer should be allowed create access on the 22b7863cce3425b0bed65f295c8925c5.png 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 evince-thumbnai /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 3 Miroslav Grepl 2012-12-16 05:29:45 EST
Do you know where the 22b7863cce3425b0bed65f295c8925c5.png is created?
Comment 4 Eric Reitmaier 2012-12-16 16:20:51 EST
When running strace, I found it tries to create png files with similar name as follows:

/tmp/evince-thumbnailer.3880:open("/lib64/libpng15.so.15", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = 3
/tmp/evince-thumbnailer.3880:open("/home/ericr/.thumbnails/normal/e329d169a0c5c18effd8ae4f4eeda237.png", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC, 0666) = 6
/tmp/evince-thumbnailer.3887:open("/lib64/libpng15.so.15", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = 3
/tmp/evince-thumbnailer.3887:open("/home/ericr/.thumbnails/normal/e7e525f3172d3b8e2b2c0cbd8b7aec6a.png", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC, 0666) = 10
/tmp/evince-thumbnailer.3902:open("/lib64/libpng15.so.15", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = 3

the directory $HOME/.thumbnails was missing...
I have created the directory and the underlying normal directory.
Need to verfify if issue is fixed.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-03 20:51:45 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
