fedora-users: Blank SELinux alerts

Blank SELinux alerts

For the last six years, I've been running BOINC on my computer and
participating in various WCG projects starting with Folding@Home as well
as Einstein@Home. Recently, a badly-written project started spewing
SELinux alerts because it was trying to walk various directories in
/proc where it has no business being. (BOINC runs in permissive mode; I
get the alerts, but the actions are allowed.) The only way to stop this
was to abort the unit and, eventually, unselect the project completely.

Just before I did that, I accidentally opened the troubleshooter twice.
  Before I could deal with the first instance, it closed and a second
window opened, blank. Since then, I've been getting several alerts a
day, but whenever I click on the icon, there are no alerts showing.
I've reported this to fedoraforum.org, but so far, no response. Does
anybody here know what file/files sealert is looking at that might be
corrupted?
