The avahi startup issue appears to be caused by an issue with selinux-policy-targeted-2.2.2-1 :

# audit2allow </var/log/audit/audit.log | grep avahi
allow avahi_t initrc_t:unix_stream_socket connectto;

# grep avahi-daemon /var/log/audit/audit.log
type=AVC msg=audit(1138039806.833:117): avc:  denied  { connectto } for  pid=2696 comm="avahi-daemon" name="system_bus_socket" scontext=system_u:system_r:avahi_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:system_r:initrc_t:s0 tclass=unix_stream_socket

This is weird, as the system-bus-socket seems to have the correct context:
$ ls -lZ /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket
srwxrwxrwx  root     root     system_u:object_r:system_dbusd_var_run_t /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket

Yet all dbus-daemon's FDs have context system_u:system_r:initrc_t :

# ls -Z /proc/$dbus_daemon_system_pid/fd
...system_u:system_r:initrc_t...

I think this is because /usr/bin/dbus-daemon, which HAD context 'system_u:object_r:system_dbusd_exec_t',
has now moved to /bin, where it now has context 'system_u:object_r:bin_t' .

I'm not sure that just creating links will rectify this ( /bin precedes /usr/bin in the initscripts $PATH )-
selinux-policy needs updating to take account of the new dbus-daemon location.
