SELinux blocking something related to camera

I am having some trouble accessing my Canon EOS 10D camera through 
digikam as non-root. SELinux seems to be blocking something. When I turn 
the camera on I get these messages in /var/log/messages:
Apr  9 10:34:43 ranger kernel: usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using 
uhci_hcd and address 2
Apr  9 10:34:44 ranger kernel: usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 
Apr  9 10:34:44 ranger kernel: audit(1144571684.462:10): avc:  denied  {

tcontext=system_u:object_r:pam_var_console_t:s0 tclass=dir
Apr  9 10:37:03 ranger kernel: usb 2-1: USB disconnect, address 2

What should I disable in the SELinux policy to make this work? Any 
thoughts are greatly appreciated.
