One important thing I have just found is that it looks like the problem 
only happens when booting in enforcing mode. If I boot in permissive 
mode it does not happen. My home machines are currently set to boot in 
permissive mode and I'll test this evening to see if I can reproduce the 
problem if I change them to enforcing mode. If so I'll be able to do lots 
of testing during my vacation.
