What is the AVC.  It might be just doing a getattr of /root which could trigger an AVC.

When an app starts with it's homedir set to /root, it will getattr on the $HOME, which can cause this AVC.  Usually these are dontaudited.  So I would need to see the AVC to understand what it is complaining about.

grep avc /var/log/audit/audit.log
