AVCs from restarting httpd but only when in permissive mode



I had to reboot earlier this week because X crashed in a way that took
out my keyboard, requiring a reboot to get the keyboard to work again.
And when I temporarily set to permissive some time ago to do some
testing, then set back to enforcing, somehow my "default" mode got left
in permissive.  That's now fixed and I'm back in enforcing mode.
Anyway, after the reboot I came up in permissive mode, which is how I
discovered this.

If I restart httpd while in permissive mode, I get two AVCs.  If I
restart httpd while in enforcing mode, I get none.  Is this normal or
expected?  Since I only get these AVCs while in permissive mode, there's
no error in httpd logs to look for.  (And when I look anyway, all I see
is normal "starting up" sorts of messages.)
