Yes, the error occurred during stracing.  Strange thing, I straced
twice with different log files.  The first time I made the error
happen once.  The second time I made the error happen numerous times. 
Both times the log file was the same size and number of lines.

Anyway,  I have SElinux disabled.  Will booting with "enforcing=0"
tell me anything?

There is an audit message which comes up on boot:
Jul 29 10:20:41 neidorff kernel: audit: initializing netlink socket (disabled)
Jul 29 10:20:41 neidorff kernel: audit: initializing netlink socket (disabled)
Jul 29 10:20:41 neidorff kernel: audit(1122632103.538:0): initialized
Jul 29 10:20:41 neidorff kernel: audit(1122632103.538:0): initialized
I don't know if this is relavent or not.


I tried an existing user who had not logged in before.  Started kmail
and created the user's account.  Same problem.

I'm going to try the reboot with enforcing...
