Here is what I see:  On every exit from system-config-securitylevel, it
attempts to rewrite /etc/selinux/config and reset the kernel enforcing
status to whatever is in that file, even if no changes were made.  Looks
like the dirty flag is being set all the time by enabled_changed due to
invocation during initialization, but I haven't looked into why.   Dan?
