Nope, that's not the issue.  The problem is SeLinux.  I have tried
su, su -, and logging on a console screen as root - same problem.
If I turn off selinux (setenforce 0), I can run /sbin/service network restart
and it runs fine.  If I turn SeLinux back on, it fails again.  Seems like a
messed up SeLinux policy.

Any hints on how to verify and/or fix?
