The problem is I need to re-do for local.te from time to time, and whenver I
run (after rebooting)
# audit2allow -M local < /var/log/audit/audit.log
the line

allow httpd_t shadow_t:file { getattr read write };

is automatically added to local.te -- this time, it added more, not just read.
 I believe that this is because I need to run change_password plugin in
squirrelmail.  It is not a problem in fc4 selinux -- I run audit2allow to add
entry into local.te and run make load, then everything is working.  But, in
fc5, it is a problem.  If I remove that line, then whenever I run the above
command, it is automatically added.

How to fix the problem?

Thanks!
