Creating files from initrc_t

Hi

On CentOS 5.6, I have just noticed that if a process running under context
initrc_t creates a file or directory within a user's home directory, that
object gets user_home_dir_t.

If an unconfined_t process does the same thing, they correctly get
user_home_t.

Was this a bug or a feature?
