I recently upgraded to FC14. the first time I started pd SELinux didn't 
like it (though I haven't noticed any operational problems yet). 
This is the brief error message:

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/pdextended from using the 'execstack' 
accesses on a process.

*****  Plugin allow_execstack (53.1 confidence) suggests 

If you do not think /usr/bin/pdextended should need to map stack memory 
that is both writable and executable.
Then you need to report a bug. This is a potentially dangerous access.
