Mathematica 6.0 vs SELinux?

Dear Mathematica friends

when installing Mathematica 6.0 in Fedora 7 of RHEL5 Linux 
I get the warning that Mathematica conflicts with the 
SE (Security Enhenced) feature of Linux.

How can a mathematical software conflict with security issues?
I do not find it a good idea to limit the security today.

Wolfram reccommends 
  http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/linux/general/selinux.html
but there Mathematica 5.2 is described and explanation is given.

Can someone explain the conflict between Mathematica 6.0 and SELinux?

Thanks for any help
