Default /var/log/btmp getting mislabeled?

I just got this one logging in. Looks like /var/log/btmp is getting mislabeled

Summary

SELinux is preventing gdm-simple-slav(/usr/libexec/gdm-simple-slave) (xdm_t)
"write" to (var_log_t).
Detailed Description

SELinux is preventing gdm-simple-slav(/usr/libexec/gdm-simple-slave) (xdm_t)
"write" to <Unknown> (var_log_t). The SELinux type var_log_t, is a generic type
for all files in the directory and very few processes (SELinux Domains) are
allowed to write to this SELinux type. This type of denial usual indicates a
mislabeled file. By default a file created in a directory has the gets the
context of the parent directory, but SELinux policy has rules about the creation
of directories, that say if a process running in one SELinux Domain (D1) creates
a file in a directory with a particular SELinux File Context (F1) the file gets
a different File Context (F2). The policy usually allows the SELinux Domain (D1)
the ability to write, unlink, and append on (F2). But if for some reason a file
(<Unknown>) was created with the wrong context, this domain will be denied. The
usual solution to this problem is to reset the file context on the target file,
restorecon -v <Unknown>. If the file context does not change from var_log_t,
then this is probably a bug in policy. Please file a bug report
(http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi) against the selinux-policy
package. If it does change, you can try your application again to see if it
works. The file context could have been mislabeled by editing the file or moving
the file from a different directory, if the file keeps getting mislabeled, check
the init scripts to see if they are doing something to mislabel the file.
Allowing Access

You can attempt to fix file context by executing restorecon -v
<Unknown> The following command will allow this access:
restorecon &lt;Unknown&gt;
