I can't reproduce it, but in attempting to I discovered that I don't have SELinux set to enforcing. Ooops. But it looks like that could potentially be related. There's a Bugzilla comment that has steps that addressed something that looks vaguely similar. If that doesn't do it, you might check the SELinux audit log for messages. I'm just sort of guessing here.
