1) Your watch will actually trigger some audit messages since that file
does get written sometimes, vs. using Eric or Steve Grubb's suggestion
which should never fire.

2) I see a type=PATH record rather than type=AVC_PATH, e.g.:
type=PATH msg=audit(01/20/2010 14:43:20.785:41253) : item=0 name=./capable_file/temp_file inode=841249 dev=fd:00 mode=file,644 ouid=root ogid=root rdev=00:00 obj=unconfined_u:object_r:test_file_t:s0 
type=CWD msg=audit(01/20/2010 14:43:20.785:41253) :  cwd=/home/sds/selinux-testsuite/tests 
type=SYSCALL msg=audit(01/20/2010 14:43:20.785:41253) : arch=x86_64 syscall=fchownat success=no exit=-1(Operation not permitted) a0=ffffffffffffff9c a1=1687310 a2=2 a3=ffffffff items=1 ppid=5167 pid=5182 auid=sds uid=root gid=root euid=root suid=root fsuid=root egid=root sgid=root fsgid=root tty=pts0 ses=1110 comm=chown exe=/bin/chown subj=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:test_nofcap_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 key=(null) 
type=AVC msg=audit(01/20/2010 14:43:20.785:41253) : avc:  denied  { chown } for  pid=5182 comm=chown capability=chown scontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:test_nofcap_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:test_nofcap_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tclass=capability 

As I recall, AVC_PATH was for the case where we could directly generate
the pathname during AVC audit (i.e. the hook had the vfsmount and dentry
available to it), whereas PATH is when syscall audit collected the
pathname on entry.
