Error message with write test ON
Description of problem:
I tried to execute benchmark of mounted virtual drivers/volumes in F18 running as Virtual machine.
Either with or without write test enabled, all attempts ended with errors (please see attached snapshots to see details of these errors)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Disks tool, open "More actions..." menu (button of 2 gears)
2. Choose "Benchmark Drive..." or "Benchmark Volume..." (depending if drive or volume was chosen).
3. Click "Start Benchmark..." button
4. Execute action with "Start Benchmarking..." button (with or without checked "Also perform write-benchmark")
5. Authorize yourself (if requested)
6. Error pops up
Benchmark execution ends with an error
a) If benchmark of mounted drivers / volumes is not allowed, the benchmark possibility should be grey (inactive) in "More actions..." menu or some info message should pop up and inform user about needed prerequisites to execute the test
b) If benchmark is executable on mounted drivers / volumes, the benchmark execution should be successfully done.
Please let me know if more info is needed (logs)
Thanks to have a look at it in advance!

Another error message with write test ON
I just found an SELinux error that's most probably the cause of this incident
"SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/dbus-daemon from read access on the blk_file /dev/vda3"
