Hello Erinn,
Just to make things clear, it is "fixed" by means that it is documented and
the new default SELinux user is unconfined_u:s0-s0:c0.c1023. But this only
applies for new IPA server installations. As for the upgraded installs, you
want to check default SELinux user to ensure that it is set to a value that
you want (probably unconfined_u:s0-s0:c0.c1023).

We could not forcefully change it from guest_u to unconfined_u:s0-s0:c0.c1023
in the upgrade process as we cannot know if some user does not have it set to
guest_u on purpose.

Thanks for understanding,
Martin
