Error on relable for SELinux

I need a SELinux person to explain this error for me.  It seems to occur
when I try to print from the web.

The suggested command "restorecon -v Par0 doesn't work because for one
thing Par0 doesn't exist I think.  The error seems to be that something
wants to relable sbin/udevd to par0, and since that didn't occur I
suspect that the problem is not with Par0, but rather the /sbin/udevd.
And since I think this is a system file, I am not sure it should be
relabled anyway, without causing other problems.  At least that is my
take.  Any ideas?

	Please help with detailed information.  I do not want to mess up my
system, which seems to be working well except for this.

Here is the output from the SETroubleshoot window:

    SELinux is preventing /sbin/udevd (udev_t) "relabelto" to par0

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /sbin/udevd. It is not expected
that this
    access is required by /sbin/udevd and this access may signal an
    attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or
configuration of
    the application is causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access
    Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials.  You could
try to
    restore the default system file context for par0, restorecon -v par0
If this
    does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this
    Instead,  you can generate a local policy module to allow this
access - see
    http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385 Or you can
    SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not
    recommended. Please file a
    against this package.
