OK, that's pretty conclusive as to the source of the issue.

I've run into this more than a few times myself. What I've been told
when I complained about it is "that's normal because selinux log
messages are rate-limited to avoid inflating the log files too much".
Which is plausible in itself, but rate-limiting to zero is not helpful.
Feel free to file another gripe in Red Hat's bugzilla.
