We saw at least one variant of this that was solved by turning selinux
_on_.

If you were running in enforcing mode, then X would attempt to load its
selinux policy from the disk, get rejected by the kernel, and would fail
open to the normal non-selinux state.  If, however, you were in
permissive mode, it would load the policy from the disk, then enforce it
due to a bug, and would throw denials all over the place.

That'll teach you to turn selinux off...
