SELinux prevents adding users in FC3?

Hey all,

I'm trying to figure out why I can't add any new users in FC3 when I have SElinux enabled. Attempting to add a new user will just kinda hang and never to anything, but if I disable SELinux and reboot, I can add users no problem. Even setting SELinux to permissive mode doesn't work.. I actually have to disable it before I'm allowed to add anybody new. I'm curious to know if this is supposed to behave like this or not, as I'd like to get a system set up in production using SELinux, but if I have to reboot it anytime I need to add a new user, then it's not going to work.

Thanks in advance for any help.

*Edit: A little more testing has shown that this only happens when using the graphical user manager. I am able to add and remove users after setting SELinux into permissive mode through the CLI without any problems. So, for whatever reason, the user manager doesn't seem to pick up on that until after a reboot. Weird....
