I explored this a bit further. I moved away the
/var/lib/tor/hidden_service directory. Then I started tor and now it
came up fine. It also recreated the /var/lib/tor/hidden_service
directory as torrc hadn't changed. But then I tried to restart it. Now
it failed, with the same selinux errors. 

Seems definitely to be a bug of some sort. Not sure if it is with
selinux or tor though. And I know it worked a while back.
