Can you elaborate a little, or point to the bugzilla entry?

It presently just uses the default context for "root" from sulogin's
domain, where the default can be altered via the default_contexts
configuration.  Were you thinking of having it allow the user to select
a context if multiple contexts are returned like pam_selinux does?
