I guess these lines in the /var/log/messages are relevant:
Mar  2 19:49:25 home1 yum: Updated: selinux-policy-3.5.13-46.fc10.noarch
Mar  2 19:49:49 home1 dbus: avc:  received policyload notice (seqno=2)
Mar  2 19:49:49 home1 dbus: avc:  received policyload notice (seqno=2)

I guess it will be in BZ before too long - and I notice that -47 is in
updates testing - hopefully this problem will be fixed before -48 is
released!
