Selinux an vsftp

I am getting 500 OOPS: failed to open xferlog log file:/var/log/vsftpd.log,
so I'm gessing that its something wrong in the selinux-setup

Ls -Z looks lime this
-rw-r--r--  root     root     system_u:object_r:var_log_t      vsftpd.log

And in audit log

type=AVC msg=audit(1127260722.483:14084097): avc:  denied  { append } for
pid=622 comm="vsftpd" name="vsftpd.log" dev=dm-0 ino=1143798
scontext=system_u:system_r:ftpd_t tcontext=system_u:object_r:var_log_t

I'm guessing that I've got something wrong, but cant find what to do

With best regards

Tomas Larsson
