If you chcon -t bin_t /usr/sbin/gdm

Does the problem disappear?


/usr/sbin/gdm is a shell script and it is executing



test -f /etc/profile && . /etc/profile


Which could be causing some of these spurious denials.  We should not be
labeling the script as xdm_exec_t since that is the label on gdm-binary.

I will make this change in selinux-policy-3.0.8-56
