When attempting to change my background in a fresh install of the Fedora25 FXFCE Spin, the dialog doesn't let me choose any images, and I get an SELinux error:

I took some screenshots of the dialogs:

Desktop chooser

File picker

SELinux error

Performing both of the steps outlined in the Troubleshooter doesn't fix anything, the SELinux error just pops up again. It seems like I need a more relaxed restriction on allowing the picker to access the .cache/thumbnails dir, and also to the directories containing images, /usr/share and $HOME. I'm able to view those directories in the file manager with no problems.
