Description Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2013-05-12 01:19:41 EDT
Description of problem:
Gnome-shell seemed to hang up. I used a virtual terminal to kill it so it would restart. Got this avc denial. I used the restorecon command it suggested, still thought the bug may be worth reporting.
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/login from 'read' accesses on the file /home/ankur/.hushlogin.

*****  Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests  *************************

If you want to fix the label. 
/home/ankur/.hushlogin default label should be local_login_home_t.
Then you can run restorecon.
# /sbin/restorecon -v /home/ankur/.hushlogin

*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that login should be allowed read access on the .hushlogin 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 login /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

The alert tells you what to do.

/sbin/restorecon -v /home/ankur/.hushlogin

9344056a661b92e857762bdc49141c391487093c Fixes this so the file will be created with the correct label, by default.
