More of a curiosity than help. Are the domains containing their own 
needs for SELinux individually or is the SELinux policies set for the 
main host system?

Help related, I usually have the best luck dropping to runlevel 1 with 
SELinux set to permissive and running fixfiles relabel. I answer yes to 
the clear the /tmp directory and usually the system seems to be set back 
to a sane condition.
There is a chance though that you might need to do some SELinux tweaking 
for things you set earlier with individual commands to SELinux programs.
