Many thanks for the fedora-classroom on Sunday without which I would
not have known how to investigate this problem. I'd appreciate your
comment if I have soved this correctly by changing the file context to
mount_exec_t, and if my discovery method was correct. I know that I
also must use semanage to make the fix permanent.

If there is a later policy version, what is the specific package name
to yum update? I have only slow dialup internet connection, so I am
not able to update "everything" until f11 dvd.


I was really asking what RPM version. Sorry. Are you fully up to date on SELinux policy.

yum -y update selinux-policy-targeted

The command you executed is allowed in Rawhide. And it should be allowed in F9. It looks like the current F9 policy, mount_t is allowed to read all content. Including default_t, if you have the allow_mount_anyfile boolean set.
