login - Error in service module

I am running Fedora 8 in  run level 5. SELinux is enabled.

When I <ctl><alt><F[1-6]> to a virtual console I get the text login screen
I enter a username and password (either root or any normal user)
I press enter, and get a message "Error in service module"
The screen clears and returns to login.

If I disable SELinux with setenforce 0 this does not happen.

[root confianza ~]# uname -a
Linux confianza #1 SMP Sat Sep 20 09:12:30 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

in /var/log/messages I get
6 15:37:21 localhost setroubleshoot: SELinux is preventing login
(local_login_t) "read" to ./limits.conf (var_log_t). For complete
SELinux messages. run sealert -l 5f8baee3-51a7-4c91-bb95-2499cf6e0f6f

So as recommended I ran 
[root confianza log]# sealert -l 5f8baee3-51a7-4c91-bb95-2499cf6e0f6f


SELinux is preventing login (local_login_t) "read" to ./limits.conf (var_log_t).

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by login. It is not expected that this access is
required by login and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also
possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is
causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore
the default system file context for ./limits.conf,

restorecon -v './limits.conf'

If this does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this access.
Instead, you can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Or you can disable
SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended.
Please file a bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.

Doesn't help

I read the FAQ at http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385
I read the man page for  audit2allow and I don't get it.

Has anyone run into this before? How do I fix it without having to disable SELinux?

Thanks for your help
