That is pulseaudio. Well strictly speaking its gnome settings daemon,
but in gnome, pulsaudio is kind of integrated into settings daemon

Basically it wants to read/write the socket in /tmp/.esd*

I am not certain though if /tmp/.esd* should be labelled tmp_t or
user_tmp_t, and so i think it is best if you can see if you can
reproduce this issue before i suggest a patch.

Basically what you would do is;

rm -rf /tmp/.esd*
rm -rf /tmp/pulse
rm -rf ~/.pulse-cookie
rm -rf ~/.Pulse
rm -rf ~/.esd_auth

Then reboot and see with what type the pulseaudio object in /tmp were

I run a modified policy in which pulseaudio runs in the gnome settings
daemon security domain. I basically did that to make sure the paths
above always get labelled properly, where you starte pulseaudio manually
or via gnome.
