Procmail, Spamassassin, and /etc/shadow

With a fully updated FC5 targeted policy, in permissive mode, while sorting
incoming mail, procmail invokes spamassassin, which wants read and getattr
permission for file /etc/shadow. I used audit2allow to create an allow
rule for these cases, but the resulting local.pp module will not load,
because it triggers an assert rule.

What is the recommended resolution to this issue?
