It's a matter of reproduce with targeted policy, reproduce with selinux=0 or 
maybe reproduce with enforcing=0 (NB enforcing=0 still has some small 
potential to break things).

Also the exact details of how the problem must be reproduced will be 
negotiated with the support person.  For example if "ls" didn't display file 
details correctly you should not be required to reboot with enforcing=0.
