LinuxShield 1.6.0 on RHEL5 with SELinux enforcing

We're using LinuxShield 1.6.0 on a RHEL5 platform with SELinux enforcing.  When an on-demand scan is scheduled or deleted the /etc/crontab file is updated.  The update is changing the SELinux enforcing context from system_cron_spool_t to etc_t which keeps the cron.hourly, cron.weekly and orher crons in this file from executing.  One must run the restorecon program on /etc/crontab to restore the context to system_cron_spool_t.  How do I prevent scheduling/deleting on-demand scans from changing the context of the /etc/crontab file?
