kernel audit - var/log/messages

Hi, I'm running Fedora Core 5. I'm noticing a lot of these kernel audit messages in the messages log. Anything I should worry about? Thanks

Nov 13 12:40:42 netmax kernel: audit(1194975642.296:2435483): avc: denied { search } for pid=15231 comm="procmail" name="log" dev=dm-1 ino=753665 scontext=user_u:system_rrocmail_t:s0 tcontext=system_ubject_r:var_log_t:s0 tclass=dir
