Description of problem:
Just logged in to my GNOME 3 desktop
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/abrt-applet from 'write' accesses on the directory ccpp-2013-03-31-17:00:20-25494.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that abrt-applet should be allowed write access on the ccpp-2013-03-31-17:00:20-25494 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 abrt-applet /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
