Did you run setroubleshoot? That opens a window that gives lots of useful info 
on what Selinux is specifically objecting to. You're not clear about how you 
made your determinations as described above. 

Re: bugzilla - do a search on this list for posts from Lonni Friedman. He 
works for nvidia and frequently posts a link to a page on the nVidia site 
that gives explicit directions on how to file problem reports. Reporting 
issues with nVidia proprietary drivers to the Redhat bugzilla site will not 
get you anywhere - you wouldn't even find a category in the drop-down 
selections for the nvidia-96xx driver.
