Each time anybody trying to access a samba share I get a denials like this:

type=AVC msg=audit(1250191256.756:26956): avc:  denied  { getattr } for  pid=20508 comm="smbd" path="/var/www" dev=dm-5 ino=2 scontext=system_u:system_r:smbd_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 tclass=dir

type=AVC msg=audit(1250191256.756:26955): avc:  denied  { getattr } for  pid=20508 comm="smbd" path="/var/mysql" dev=dm-4 ino=2 scontext=system_u:system_r:smbd_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:mysqld_db_t:s0 tclass=dir

I am not sure why samba is trying to access this directories, it's no ones home, just a mount point. dovecot generates the same AVCs, but only when it starts. What is the best way to suppress these? Thanks.
