Yes it is very odd. I have had a rash of system with SELinux labelling
issues, so I ran a restorecon on the file system to no avail, as well I
set SELinux to permissive mode, again no help there.

Permissions appear correct:
srw-rw-rw- 1 root root    0 Aug  8 18:35 nss
srw-rw-rw- 1 root root    0 Aug  8 18:35 pam

Is there a simple way to sanitize these log files?
