thanks stephen.  i didn't even know that there was such a list.  :-)

its FC4.  clean install.  auditd is running.

i guess i'd misunderstood. i'd thought that with it running, the
audit.log as well as to messages.

however, if i point at audit.log instead, it does NOT segfault, but
finds no messages either.  :-)

thanks for your help.  i will see about getting to the selinux list.

hope your day is going well.
