[CentOS] Logwatch verbosity

I'm getting literally hundreds of lines in my daily logwatch 
(under Centos-5.5), reading
---------------------------------------
NULL security context for user, but SELinux in permissive mode, 
	continuing ()
---------------------------------------

These began when I started running fail2ban (with shorewall),
though that is probably a coincidence.

In any case, what does this line mean,
and is there any way of stopping it (short of stopping selinux)?
