I'm not seeing anything closely related nowadays. I did at first but now 
it's failing without logging any clear avcs :

# audit2allow < /var/log/audit/audit.log allow dovecot_auth_t tmp_t:dir 
getattr; allow saslauthd_t usr_t:lnk_file read;
allow sysadm_su_t etc_runtime_t:file read;
allow sysadm_su_t tmp_t:dir getattr;
allow sysadm_su_t usr_t:lnk_file read;
allow unconfined_t lib_t:file execmod;

But shutting down selinux fixes the problem, so it's selinux-related
