Updated setroubleshoot packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The setroubleshoot packages provide tools to help diagnose SELinux problems. When Access Vector Cache (AVC) messages are generated, an alert can be displayed that provides information about the problem and helps track its resolution. Alerts are user-configurable. The same tools can be run on existing log files.

Bug Fix

Due to a memory leak in the rpm underlying code, the setroubleshoot tool consumed extensive memory resources. This update applies a patch that reduces memory consumption significantly, however, the problem has not been fixed completely and has to be resolved in the rpm utility.
All users of setroubleshoot are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
