I thought as much.

/home/benites	system_u:object_r:user_home_dir_t:s0

Sorry, I knew I forgot something. We use LDAP
and Kerberos for authentication so I do not have
a entry in /etc/passwd. On another system where I
use local password authentication and is also
running RHEL 6:

[benites@host2 ~]$ grep benites /etc/passwd
benites:x:500:100:Robert K. Benites:/home/benites:/bin/bash
[benites@host2 ~]$ ls -ldZ /home/benites
drwxr-xr-x. benites users unconfined_u:object_r:user_home_dir_t:s0 /home/benites

I thought adding the context user_home_dir_t on my
home directory on the host where I'm having problems
would solve the problem -- something suggested in
one of the posts I read, but I was unsuccessful
at doing that.
