The name has changed between RHEL5 - allow_unconfined_mmap_low and F12 - mmap_low_allowed 

The meaning has also changed 

in RHEL5

unconfined domains are allowed to mmap_low if the boolean is set.  vbetool and wine are allowed whether or not the boolean is set.

In F12
No domains are allowed to mmap_low unless the boolean is set.   If it is set wine, vbetool and unconfined domains are allowed to mmap_zero.

One of you is running wine in RHEL5 which is allowed to mmap_zero without the boolean.  We changed this in F12 so that wine will break without the boolean set.
