You say you're running RHEL 5.7 (and not some RHEL clone such as CentOS 
or Scientific Linux). That means you've paid us for a subscription and 
part of what you've paid for is a promise things will work. If they are 
not working please following the support procedures with your RHEL 
representative to get help and/or file a bug (sorry, I can't tell you 
how that process works because I sit on the other end inside of 
engineering). The issue will be assigned to one of us in engineering, 
because it appears to be an SELinux policy issue it won't likely come to 
me, rather it will go to an engineer assigned to SELinux policy issues. 
SELinux policy problems usually get fixed very quickly once they get 
reported, in the interim the engineer assigned to the bug will likely 
tell you the optimal temporary workaround.
