Just a wild guess, but I would not be surprised if the problem is our
security context. If we setup the notify as one euid and try to handle
the notify as a different euid then maybe selinux refuses it.

Might we worth writing a bit of test code, and if this guess does turn
out to be right, we can fix with some euid hacks on -1/EACCES.
