Seems that /var/spool/mail (which is bind mounted) had its contexts messed
up - and restorecon -vR /var/spool/mail seems to have fixed this issue.

In fact I wonder now if bind mounted directories are where the problem is
being seen?  In my case I have bind mounted user areas and bind mounted mail
spools...  perhaps if you don't have any bind mounts you don't see a
problem?
