Mathematica 6.0 and SELinux?

  Dear Mathematica friends,

can someone please explain why Mathematica 6.0 conflicts with SELinux?
SE stands for Security Enhanced.
Does a user have to reduce the security of the system to run Mathematica? 

>From the naive point of view, a mathematical software should not
conflict with security issues, or should it?

Wolfram in the installation instructions gives the url
  http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/linux/general/selinux.html
but this page only suggests what to do with Mathematica 5.2.
It gives no explanation.

Thanks for any help
