apparently the problem is that the user 'dbus' is not root and is not
thus empowered to send messages to audit system.

The apparent lack of people bitching about this on nahant list or centos
list makes me think that a large amount of RHEL 4 (or clone) users have
simply turned SELinux off. I guess that puzzles me as much as anything.


ps - my fix, though more work, doesn't use stuff out of rawhide and
probably is more instructive towards solving problems than simply
installing an updated rpm from rawhide (which is eminently easier).
