Yeh, thanks :-)

Thanks for your continuing attention, Eric, and the explanation of
SELinux basics :-).  However, I'm no closer to the issue of the error
message - or even where to try looking for it.  Even if I reboot in
permissive mode where are the SELinux messages written becasue it's not
where I would expect (as posted before)?.

Perhaps the whole thing is in the info I've already posted.  Since doing
the most recent upgrade of SELinux rpms my system is now booting in
permissive mode (as shown above) even though the config file says it
shouldn't.  So perhaps the messages I'm seeing since the upgrade are
normal permissive-mode messages that were previously hidden?  Since all
services seem to start as they should, perhaps this is a case of ignore
it and stop worrying?
