Then this needs to be done better ... it looks like everything stops when this 
occurs and that things did not complete.  Rather than saying it is an error, 
it needs to say what happened and what to do.

Additionally, I don't seem to get this "error" for /dev/tty1 everytime I run 
"make relabel" ... only sometimes.  This does not make sense to me.
