A bug for this functionality was reported i believe. Turns out that
Fedora needs some extra tweaks. No sure if this has been fixed yet in
I filed bug 1063503 for the cron issue. In this thread I was more
interested in why the boolean got turned back off. I know for sure that
I used the -P option on two systems to work around the cron issue and both
got changed back to unset. (It might have happened twice on one machine,
but I am not sure of that.)
I have just tested a reboot and reinstalling (yum reinstall)
selinux-policy-targeted, but am not seeing cron_userdomain_transition
I don't have any other easily testable guesses for what happened, so for now
I'll just keep an eye on it.
