Package: policycoreutils
Version: 2.1.10-6
Followup-For: Bug #668954

I checked the output of semodule -l and there's no sandbox policy module, and I
have no idea how to install it. Maybe it has something to do with this bug. I
still couldn't get sandbox to work.

Also, sometimes sandbox this error instead of "Invalid argument":
Could not set exec context to
Failed to remove directory /tmp/.sandbox-root-rox12v: No such file or directory

This happened when I ran "sandbox -X evince" as root. When I run it as a normal
user it shows the "Invalid argument" error.
