close, so close.

Now auditd is fchmoding /var/log/audit/audit.log to 600 and everything
works fine.  But run 'service auditd restart' or just reboot and audit
will refuse to start!

Dec 30 11:53:43 dhcp231-146 auditd: /var/log/audit/audit.log permissions
should be 0640

But at least this time it isn't breaking the whole system   :)
