Thank you for taking an interest.

I don't know what could be wrong with /usr/bin/xauth since KDM works fine.  I see nothing in /var/log/messages from SElinux (except something related to wine).

What permissions should I be looking for?

$ ls -l --lcontext /usr/bin/xauth
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 system_u:object_r:xauth_exec_t:s0 root root 36840 Feb  8  2011 /usr/bin/xauth                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

$ ls -l --lcontext /usr/bin/slim-dynwm 
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0       root root 120 Jul 25 12:07 /usr/bin/slim-dynwm
