'twould be nice if that worked. :(

Unforch, I can't recall when the setroubleshooters advice ever worked here.
The latest denial recommends a 'restorecon -v "./lp3"' but doesn't work on the 
only "./lp3" I could find on the system, in /etc/cups/interfaces/lp3.  Using 
Brothers own drivers installed by their own rpms.  I even did an autorelabel 
on the last reboot, no change in the error message I posted to the selinux 
list noonish yesterday, and no reply has been seen.
