/tmp/gconfd-* : wrong type after 'augmenting' user

Running strict/enforcing, latest rawhide.

I changed an existing user to a 'sysadm' user by adding to
local.users, rebuilt/installed new policy, and did a 'restorecon -v
-R' of home directory, /etc, /tmp, ....

On reboot, logging shows that the preexisting /tmp/gconfd-XXX 
remained labeled as 'user_u:....'.

Removing  it (and several 'aumix*' files that were similarly labeled),
and rebooting 'fixed' this.

Is this the best, or does it make sense to considering adding 'per
user' rules for such files?
