Like always, as soon as I report something an update comes along and
fixes it, selinux-policy-targeted-3.3.1-64.fc9

A normal user can now mount fuse volumes, however when umounting the
volume I get this: Although the umount is successful. 


SELinux prevented umount from mounting on the file or directory
"/media/.hal-mtab-lock" (type "mnt_t").

Detailed Description:

SELinux prevented umount from mounting a filesystem on the file or
"/media/.hal-mtab-lock" of type "mnt_t". By default SELinux limits the
of filesystems to only some files or directories (those with types that
have the
mountpoint attribute). The type "mnt_t" does not have this attribute.
You can
either relabel the file or directory or set the boolean
"allow_mount_anyfile" to
true to allow mounting on any file or directory.

Allowing Access:

Changing the "allow_mount_anyfile" boolean to true will allow this
"setsebool -P allow_mount_anyfile=1."

Fix Command:

setsebool -P allow_mount_anyfile=1
