Thanks Mark for this tip. This was driving me batty. Funny thing is there
was no avc denial records in /var/messages so I had no idea that selinux was
the cause. When I started up today. The boot up messages said it would have
to relable my system. This seem strange.

I have noticed the following problem with X windows. I set a
Virtual 1600 1280 in my xorg.conf file but when I started X the Gnome panels
were blank and did not fit the screen size. I had to remove the Virtual
statement to get the default screen size of 1280 by 1028 then the
gnome panels showed up with icons. Not having virtual larger screen sucks. I
like to have two gnome terminals open which the virtual size allowed me. This
is definitely a change from FC3.
