ping redirect

This was mentioned on fedora-list, but I don't think the OP is interested in 
posting here.   "ping <host> > foo" as a normal user produces AVC:

 	Apr  3 09:41:20 vincent52 kernel: audit(1144071680.338:437): avc: 
 	{ write } for  pid=21467 comm="ping" name="foo" dev=dm-4 ino=2195784

In a gterm, it just hangs.  On a VC, ping exits with an error.

This is FC5 with selinux-policy-targeted-2.2.25-2.fc5.
